Following an update provided by Highways England, we are pleased to share with you that the new Huntingdon Southern Bypass will open on Monday 9 December.
As a result, the old stretch of the A14 will be closed between Godmanchester (Junction 24) and Spittals (Junction 23) in both directions. This is to allow work to start on the removal of Huntingdon viaduct and to build new link roads in Huntingdon town centre.
During the closure, which will last until 2022, road users who would normally have used this section of road to access or leave Huntingdon will need to travel as follows instead:
- To travel from Huntingdon towards Cambridge:
- Use the A141 (old A14) westbound to Spittals roundabout and continue to Brampton Hut. Access the A1 southbound then use the new A14 eastbound free flow link at Brampton interchange. Traffic wishing to access towns and villages along the A1307 (old A14) between Godmanchester and Swavesey can do so by exiting the new A14 at its A1198, Ermine Street junction (J23).
- To travel from Cambridge towards Huntingdon:
- Travel westbound on the new A14 to Brampton Interchange. Use the free flow link to access the A1 northbound. Exit at Brampton Hut and travel east on the A141 (old A14) to Spittals roundabout and onwards to enter Huntingdon.
View the map for further details.
All roads into and out of Huntingdon will remain open, although some overnight closures will be required to allow work to be completed safely.
Once work is completed in 2022, the road between Spittals and Godmanchester will reopen with links into and out of Huntingdon instead of over the train station via a viaduct as it is currently. For more information about the work happening in Huntingdon, visit Highways England.
