The dualled A43 link road has shortened journey times to the A14, and along the A14 itself significant upgrades are ongoing. These will substantially reduce journey times between Midlands Logistics Park and national markets.

The junction at Cathorpe is being replaced by new ‘free flow’ links that connect the M6 to the A14 and M1 to the A14 in both directions. This is dramatically improving capacity and reducing journey times at one of the most important interchanges in England.

Further improvements on the Cambridge to Huntingdon section will significantly improve the flow of traffic from the A14 to the M11, offering much quicker access via this route into London.

Access to the M1 south from the A14 is via the A43 and A45. The busiest section of the A43 will have been dualled by 2019, further improving journey times.
