A14

Huntingdon Viaduct was a large concrete viaduct where the A14 (formerly A604) crossing of the East Coast Main Line and the B1514. The structure was both impressive and oppressive, dominating the Huntingdon skyline and carrying the dual two lane carriageway road above the B1514, which itself bridges the railway line.

The viaduct had, for many years, been deteriorating, with major remedial works carried out at various points in the years leading up to its demolition in 2020.

The viaduct itself was closed for traffic on the day that the A14/Huntingdon to Cambridge Improvement opened, which bypassed the town to the south and comprises a new dual three lane carriageway crossing of the River Ouse and the railway line.
