The A14, as with most major roads of this length, has a lot of history. Most interestingly, it was originally part of several other routes.
Notable locations along the route
The Catthorpe Interchange is a major motorway and trunk road junction in the Midlands. It was constructed with a low budget, resulting in an entire motorway's traffic funneling into one lane, resulting in a notorious bottleneck.
A new interchange junction with north-facing free-flow slip roads connecting the A14 with the A1 which was constructed as part of the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Scheme.
River Great Ouse Viaduct
The River Great Ouse Viaduct is a crossing of the River Great Ouse, its floodplain and the East Coast Mainline Railway.
Major junction between the A14 (J31), M11 (J14), A428 and A1307, north-west of Cambridge.
