Cambridge to Huntingdon A14 to get new cycle path

23rd May 2014

Selwyn Divinity School, Cambridge

The A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon is to get a new cycle path as part of major works by the Highways Agency.  

The Agency is to carry out improvement works to the A14, and is currently consulting, with the consultation lasting from 7th April to 15th June 2014. The cycle path will start at the A1307 Huntingdon Road on the edge of Cambridge, and run alongside the single carriageway local access road next to the main A14, as far as Swavesey. It will have a hard surface, and be at least 3m wide. The A14 Non Motorised User Campaign had lobbied for a cycle route to be included in the plans.

The new route adds to the existing cycle provision to the north west of Cambridge, in particular the cycle route along the guided busway about 5km north of the A14.

Cambridge News quotes a Highways Agency spokesman as follows: 'The A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme proposals include a non-motorised road user route as part of the proposed improvements. It is envisaged that it will be of a similar standard to that associated with the guided busway.'

The works will start in 2016, and are likely to be finished in 2020.
