The A14 was closed over the weekend between Swavesey and Bar Hill and was due to open at 5am on Monday but the team's success meant that the road reopened at around 5am Sunday morning instead.

Main construction to upgrade 21 miles of the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon is progressing well and reached the half way mark in November 2018. The project will add capacity, boost the local and national economy and cut up to 20 minutes off drivers’ journeys.
