Sian Berry made this Freedom of Information request to Highways Agency

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Highways Agency,

I would like to request that a page is created on your website to hold information about the £20 million works programme being undertaken alongside the A14 Study, as referenced in this press release:

The release sets out a programme of work including:

"... signing and road marking improvements at:
> Spittals Interchange, the signing and road lines at the top of the exit slip road from the southbound A1-A14 link road will be upgraded. This will allow the traffic signal timings around the junction to be adjusted, increasing traffic flow and reducing delays;
> At Girton, the tight bend chevron signs on the westbound A14 link road are being raised to make them more visible to drivers of high sided vehicles, reducing the likelihood of 'loss of control' incidents on the tight bend and delays;
> Mobile electronic message signs will be installed in August on the westbound approaches to junction 24 Godmanchester and to junction 21 Brampton Hut, and on the southbound A14 Spur approach to junction 23 Spittals. These will provide information on journey times and other advice for road users, such as warning of queuing traffic ahead or advisory speed limits;
> Work is planned to start in spring 2013 to install permanent variable message signs at key locations on the A14 between junction 21 Brampton Hut and junction 35 Stow cum Quy; and
> Larger scale improvements are planned to be delivered in 2013 following completion of ongoing design work."

I would also ask that the full Transport Business Case for this improvement package, including value for money and other data in support of the plan, is published on the new webpage, and/or released publicly via this request on the WhatDoTheyKnow website.

Many thanks for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Sian Berry
