|To improve the A14 which is a major national and inter-urban regional transport artery between Cambridge and Huntingdon to relieve congestion and support both national and regional economic growth.
|The Project received an IPA rating of Amber/Green, which is an improved rating from last year, where it received an Amber rating. The Project remains on track to meet the publicly committed Open for Traffic (OfT) December 2020. The road is being delivered in 6 sections and good progress is being made which supports a high level of confidence the scheme will be delivered on time. Recent successes include the opening of the A1 with 3 lanes at national speed limit and the opening of a local access road to the A14 to enable separation of local and national traffic. Similarly, significant progress is demonstrated as all road structures are now built and in place.
|The project is on track to achieve the December 2020 Open for Traffic date, but with an aspiration to deliver earlier. The project end date in 30 September 2021 is also on track and reflects the time finalise the transition to business as usual once the road is open.
* The end date for roads projects published here is the date on which the last work to support the scheme is completed. This is different from the Open for Traffic (OfT) date, which is the completion date for schemes usually discussed with Highways England and reported elsewhere. The OfT date is usually some months (or even years) earlier than the formal end date depending on the nature and complexity of the scheme.
|Financial baseline was set in April 2016. Since then spend was brought forward to support the aspiration to open the road as early in 2020 as possible. This in year cost increase does not affect the overall scheme cost.
|Whole Life Cost
|No change to budgeted whole life costs. The project is on track to deliver to its agreed baseline and no future change is forecast.
