Huntingdon Southern Bypass
Published: 03 December 2019
Following on from my email on 18 November, I just wanted to ensure you were aware that as soon as the new Huntingdon Southern Bypass opens on Monday 9 December, we will close the old A14 between Godmanchester and Spittals in both directions.
This is to allow us to start work 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 (please see attached map for details):
- 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 (Jct 23).
- 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.
All roads into and out of Huntingdon will remain open, although there will be a requirement for some overnight closures to allow us to carry out work safely.
