The walk will follow the new A14 route between A1198, Ermine Street and Swavesey Junction. This is a unique opportunity for members of the public to explore 10 km of what will eventually be the new road carrying traffic between Cambridge and Huntingdon. HE are inviting you to come behind the traffic cones, get on site and see how they are progressing at building the new A14. This is a great opportunity for a good cause and is guaranteed to be a good day. Come and join them in the fight against cancer! You’ll arrive at their Main Project Office where you can park your vehicles for free. You’ll then be coached along the existing A14 to their Ermine Street compound. This is where your 10k guided walk along the new A14 will begin, finishing back up at their Main Project Office for drinks, Bbq, bouncy castle and more! It’s free but you need to book at A14 C2H Welly Walk
