Highways England has opened the Huntingdon Southern Bypass one year ahead of schedule, as part of the £1.5 billion upgrade of 21 miles of the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon. The new bypass runs between Ellington and Swavesey and work on the rest of the project, between Swavesey and Milton, is on schedule for completion by December 2020.

Natalie Chapman of the Freight Transport Association said: “Speaking on behalf of the UK logistics industry, FTA is thrilled Highways England has opened the Huntingdon Southern Bypass a year ahead of schedule...Our members rely on effective and efficient road networks to keep goods moving across the UK, but the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon – a vital link connecting the East coast ports in East Anglia with the Midlands and the rest of England – has long been plagued by congestion and safety issues. The bypass... will help to boost connectivity, reliability and journey safety for commercial vehicle operators and private road users alike."
