M11 Junction 13

Zoom-in from A1303 overbridge showing sign for the A14 junction (Girton). However, as there is no access to the A428, you have to turn off at J13 to head west.

A14 Girton

Looking west from the A1307 towards the diverge between M11 and A14(N) traffic. M11/A14(N) can be seen crossing the A14/A428 up ahead. Streetlight replacment at the junction, as well roadworks up ahead on the A428(E) give a Sabristic feel to the whole scene!

View from A1307 looking towards the M11(S) on-slip. The A14(N) on-slip continues under the M11 and describes a 270-degree turn to join the mainline!

Looking west from footbridge just east of Girton junction. Had to take this shot through the fencing on the far side, due to another fence running down the centre of the bridge!

Looking west from footbridge just east of Girton. Unfortunately the western side of the footbridge was fenced off, so here is a shot through the fencing on the far side of the bridge.

Looking west from footbridge just east of Girton junction, showing diverge westbound for M11/A14(N), and merge of A14 S to E slip. I had to lift my camera above a fence down the centre of the footbridge to get this shot!

Taken from the Dry Drayton/Oakington overbridge. Notice 1) M11 in wrong font on nearest sign 2) London signed via M11(A10) on the second (blue) sign -- not very politically correct! 3) Stansted aeroplane is pointing the wrong way on the second sign

A1307 Girton

Looking north towards start of the dual section over the A14/A428 at Girton junction. The A1307 soon turns into the A14 (N). This road used to be the A604, and a very long time ago the old A132.

A1307 Girton

Looking north from bridge over A14/A428, with the A14(S) visible in the background. The A1307 splits here, with the n/bound going under the A14(N)/M11 mainline (qv.). Note bus lane, which actually peters out only a short distance south of the junction.

Girton with A428 links.png
In 2007 a £1bn+ scheme for improving the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon was announced. In 2009 several designs for Girton Interchange were drawn up. The most ambitious of these had links to and from the A428. It is unlikely this option would have been chosen given that the additional links would have raised the cost of an already very expensive scheme.
