Highways Agency shows off A14 plans

An exhibition about work on the Highways Agency's £32 million improvement for the A14 between Haughley New Street and Stowmarket in Suffolk will be open to the public on Thursday next week.

Local residents and road users will be able to see the plans for the new dual carriageway at the Ron Crascall Pavilion in Haughley on Thursday 20 September from 2pm to 8pm

Staff from the Highways Agency, the contractor Birse Civils Ltd, and the designer Mouchel Parkman will be available at the exhibition to answer questions from visitors.

Residents are being invited to 'travel' through the scheme using a virtual reality 3-D computer model and will even be able to see what the road will look like from their homes. They will also be able to virtually 'drive' along or 'fly over' the new stretch of road.
