The most recent A14 Community Forum on July 27th 2016 talked about progress including work starting in various areas, and introduced the A14 Community Fund which makes money available for local groups for porjects loosely associated with the A14 and its effect.  The presentations can be seen here and here.

The A14 Community Forum on March 23rd 2016 had some significant updates about the building schedules and works in our area, see here for the presentation.

The A14 Community Forum on February 4th 2016 showed a number of presentations about the forthcoming work.  A copy of the main presentation can be seen here, and maps of the Engineering Compounds here (Brampton), here (Ermine Street and Girton), here (Swavesey North) and here (Swavesey South).

Details of the documents processed by the Inspectorate can be seen here. which contains many documents relating to the plans along the route and the associated appeals.  One of each set of plans relates to the Dry Drayton Road junction, for example the general layout of this can be seen here.  This shows the shape the junction will have, how the local road alongside the A14 will cross over, plans for cycleways, and the new arrangements for access to Hackers Farm and the Crematorium.
