The new Huntingdon Southern bypass is now open and leading Cambridgeshire housebuilders Barratt and David Wilson Homes is encouraging property seekers to take a look at its wonderful developments in the area that benefit greatly from the new works.
Barratt and David Wilson Homes have developments in St Ives, Godmanchester, Cambridge and Northstowe that will benefit from the new bypass opening recently.
Will Phair, Head of Sales at David Wilson Homes Cambridgeshire, said: “This improvement scheme benefits our developments as it makes commuting and everyday travelling much easier.
“As well as having a beautiful home in an extremely sought-after area, our homebuyers will have great transport links on their doorstep once the works are complete.”
The improvement scheme includes the major new bypass and upgrades to the 21 miles of the A14.
The recently opened bypass removes a large proportion of traffic from the existing A14 between Huntingdon and Swavesey, as well as Brampton Hut and Spittals interchange.
Alison Raine, Sales Director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: “The scheme is great for homebuyers as it could cut 20 minutes off commuters’ journeys.
“The scheme also includes new wildlife habitats in 18 new areas, around 900,000 new trees and shrubs in the area and wildlife tunnels so that animals are directed away from the roads.”
There is also new local access roads constructed including a new dual carriageway, approximately five miles in length between Fen Drayton and Swavesey and a single carriageway between Swavesey and Girton.
This provides a route for local traffic between Cambridge and Huntingdon, as well as access to properties and businesses along the corridor.
Meaning everyday journeys for homebuyers will be much simpler and local communities will be connected by just one road.
