Crime Commissioner update

An Acting Police and Crime Commissioner has been appointed by the county’s Police and Crime Panel.

 The appointment has been made in line with legislation at an extraordinary meeting held in Peterborough on Wednesday 27th November.

 The Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 requires Police and Crime Panels to appoint an Acting Commissioner when there is a vacancy that will not be filled by an election.

 Members of the Panel voted to appoint Ray Bisby, the former Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner to the role following the recent resignation of Jason Ablewhite.

 Mr Bisby takes over the role until the forthcoming PCC elections in May 2020.

A14 UPDATE

Dear Members,

Following an update provided by Highways England, we are able to share with you that the new 12-mile A14 bypass to the south of Huntingdon will open to traffic on Monday 9th December.

The bypass runs between Swavesey and Ellington and the opening of which will mean the closure of the existing stretch of A14 between Godmanchester (Junction 24) and Spittals (Junction 13). This will be closed in both directions in order to begin work on the removal of the Huntingdon viaduct and will remain closed until the work is complete.

During the closure, which will last until 2022, road users who would normally have used this section of road to access or leave Huntingdon will need to travel as follows instead (please see attached map for details):

  • To travel from Huntingdon towards Cambridge: Use the A141 (old A14) westbound to Spittals roundabout and continue to Brampton Hut. Access the A1 southbound then use the new A14 eastbound free flow link at Brampton interchange. Traffic wishing to access towns and villages along the A1307 (old A14) between Godmanchester and Swavesey can do so by exiting the new A14 at its A1198, Ermine Street junction (J23).
  • To travel from Cambridge towards Huntingdon: Travel westbound on the new A14 to Brampton Interchange. Use the free flow link to access the A1 northbound. Exit at Brampton Hut and travel east on the A141 (old A14) to Spittals roundabout and onwards to enter Huntingdon.

All roads into and out of Huntingdon will remain open, although there will be a requirement for some overnight closures to allow work to be completed safely.The road closure may affect any journeys you take through our District, therefore please consult the map attached from Highways England that outlines the new bypass and offers additional information on junction
