No More A14 Delays in Suffolk
The local and national case for investment
No More A14 Delays in Suffolk overview
Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, Suffolk County Council and our partners are working together to promote trunk road improvements in the next round of the Government’s Road Investment Strategy (RIS2), which will cover the period 2020 -2025.
The aim is to bring much needed investment into the county to address some of the major pinch points on the trunk road network to benefit the local and national economy.
In addition to the A14 improvements, Suffolk’s RIS2 bid includes a range of other much needed schemes, including bids for investment for upgrade projects on the A12 southbound and the All at Mildenhall, plus a number of maintenance schemes along the A14 between Haughley and Woolpit and between Copdock and the Orwell Bridge and a comprehensive feasibility study of the A14 from the M11 at Cambridge to Felixstowe.

As part of this collaborative campaigning, Suffolk Chamber is leading the multi-partner “No More A14 Delays in Suffolk” campaign to secure:
improvements to key junctions on the A14 at Ipswich, Bury, St Edmunds and Newmarket;
major maintenance schemes on the A14 between Haughley and Woolpit and between Copdock and the Orwell Bridge; and
a comprehensive feasibility study of the A14 from the M11 at Cambridge to Felixstowe to address remaining concerns about the A14 and the impact of future growth in the county and across the UK.
The “No More A14 Delays in Suffolk” campaign has the backing of many partners including businesses, all of the county’s MPs and local authorities, and New Anglia and Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough LEPs.
