Balfour Beatty, Costain, Skanska, Atkins and CH2M JV A14 Integrated Delivery Team announced the early opening of the brand new dual carriageway a full year ahead of schedule. On top of this, at the 2019 British Construction Industry Awards, the A14 team took home four awards including Digital Transformation Initiative of the Year, Productivity Initiative of the Year, Partnership Initiative of the Year as well as winning the coveted Initiative of the Year Award. These accolades are testament to the team’s focus on collaboration, health and safety and keeping the customer at the heart of delivering the project. Having started works back in 2016, the new 12-mile bypass which is part of a wider 21-mile, GBP 1.5 billion scheme in Cambridgeshire and the largest upgrade of its kind in the UK, will now open in December 2019. On completion, it will save drivers up to 20 minutes per journey, benefiting people living and working across the entire region.

To mark the early opening announcement, the A14 was visited by the Roads Minister, Baroness Vere. Speaking on the project, Baroness Vere, said: “This Government is committed to delivering an infrastructure revolution and it’s fantastic that a key section of this vital route will be delivered a year ahead of schedule, helping people travelling in the East of England get to their destination quickly and safely.
