Commuter Hotspot from Brampton to Cambridge
For the last few years, Brampton Village just two miles southwest of Huntingdon town, has benefited from the newly constructed A14 Improvement Scheme. This 12 mile bypass, with additional road improvements, provides a direct and strategic transport link for both commuters and long distance traffic. Implementing wider roads, improved junctions and new local access roads, the scheme accommodates the increased volume of traffic on the A14, which reaches approximately 85,000 vehicles per day. The A14 carries 16% more HGV traffic than the national average, alongside heavy commuter congestion. A new single carriageway, between Swavesey and Girton, links the A1307 between Godmanchester and Swavesey. This route, which was the former A14, provides access for local traffic from Cambridge to Huntingdon, and access to the properties and businesses situated along this course. 34 new bridges and structures were erected, connecting a number of villages to one another and to the A14, enhancing networking. More interconnected communities promotes local economic growth and, during the scheme, the A14 Community Fund supported many of these local projects, bringing positive change to communities within the area. Further to the new road networks, approximately 24 miles of new routes allow pedestrians to cycle and walk between surrounding areas and into Cambridge city centre. Local bus routes create convenient travel options to St Ives and St Neots, in addition to the guided bus from Huntingdon to Cambridge.
Brampton village is the ideal location for commuters, whether travelling into London Kings Cross/ St Pancras International via Huntingdon train station, or making use of the bypass straight into Cambridge. With a thriving and active community, Brampton offers the perfect spot for countryside living, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
