This would effectively re-route the A14 south of Huntingdon and Godmanchester, along with improvements to several junctions and widening of most of the existing A14 - detailed information and maps can be found on the Highways Agency website.

    Radegund Road Survey Results

    Thank you for responding to our survey last month and for all the issues you raised and suggestions for improvement.


    Overall there was a good response to the survey, with most responses coming from residents living on Radegund Road itself. Generally, there was agreement in people’s responses as to the issues facing the road, but varying opinions to the possible solutions.
