New plan to improve A14 safety
Plans to make a notorious stretch of the A14 safer are published by the Highways Agency on Friday for the public to view.

The scheme would realign the main dual carriageway of the A14 between Haughley New Street and Stowmarket in Suffolk.

It would provide a two-level junction for safer access to the A14 from Haughley and Harleston villages.

The majority of the work would be carried out away from the existing A14 carriageway to reduce disruption.

The plans are now available for the public to view at local council offices and in Stowmarket or Haughley, or on the Highways Agency website,

Roger Hawkins, Highways Agency Project Manager said: "This scheme is much needed and would improve safety on the A14 and reduce accidents.

"Other features include safe crossing points for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders, as well as extensive landscaping to reduce the environmental impact of the scheme."
