A14 Corridor traffic management scheme


This project is part of Priority Project 13 (United Kingdom/Ireland/Benelux road axis).


The proposal will improve traffic conditions along 3 heavily congested sections of the A14. This will be achieved by installation of:

  • Incident detection and automatic signing, traffic detection system and queue protection using variable message signs on cantilever structures.
  • Strategic diversionary message sign information at specific junctions
  • Extensive close circuit television (CCTV) coverage for improved incident response

Through wider dissemination of the data collected, significant accident reduction and delays saving will be achieved by warning drivers of upcoming accidents and advising them of preferred diversionary routes.


The project will also contribute to the ongoing EU ITS initiatives including EASYWAY and the ITS Action Plan.


This project has been completed.
