After months of preliminary work such as installing narrow lanes and temporary safety barriers, permanent work on the state of the art £1.5 billion scheme has now begun. The work that’s now under way includes archaeological excavations, building bridges and creating new habitats for wildlife. We’ve also placed workers who are continuing to build the 750m Great Ouse viaduct and there’s more to come between now and completion in 2020 with further construction taking place near the A1 at Brampton which will take 18 months. Once the main stretch of the A14 is finished, it will take a further year to complete construction on roads in the Huntingdon area, including the demolition of the A14 flyover.
The A14 scheme is part of the government’s £15 billion investment to improve motorways and major A roads across the country and will employ around 1,800 people and cover 22 miles.
We are pleased to have placed a number of Engineer on this project and will have further opportunities in Cambridge, Huntingdon and Swavesy. To find out more, chat to Penelope Ware.
