Upgrade of the A428 west of Cambridge to dual-two lane dual carriageway, largely off-line but very close to the existing road, including provision of a grade separated junction at Hardwick. This will provide dual carriageway from the Cambridge Northern Bypass (A14 and M11) to the A1198.
|14 August 2005||Work begins on site - reports suggest that tree felling, stripping of topsoil and staking out the route have all been completed.|
|14 March 2006||Work has now started at Scotland Road overbridge, meaning that all the major structures are now under way. Bourn Airfield's private access is almost ready. A temporary access route is now open between Caldecote roundabout and Bourn Plant as the existing junction will be buried under the new road.|
|14 May 2006||Bridge is nearing completion at Broadway (close to Bourn) and the access road to the airfield is now open.|
|14 August 2006||The Bourn/Broadway flyover opened over the bank holiday weekend.|
|14 October 2006||Broadway and Scotland Road bridges are now in use and the old routes destroyed; diversions are still in place for construction of other bridges and the terminal roundabout.|
|14 March 2007||The bridge at Childerley opened early in March, and Hardwick footbridge is also now in place. The new dual carriageway in that area is still being paved.|
|14 May 2007||Jerry England, the Highways Agency's Director for Major Projects, cut the ribbon and opened the new road three months ahead of schedule. The event got some rare prestige with a fly-past of pilots from the Rural Flying Corps at Bourn Airfield.|
