Road network

The A1307 is a secondary class A road in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk between the A14 at junction 31 in Cambridge to Haverhill, Suffolk.


The road starts at junction 31 on the A14 with access from only A14 traffic from he west and access to westbound A14 traffic towards Huntingdon. The road immediately continues into Cambridge (Girton) and heads into the centre, passing the Fitzwilliam College to the A1134 where the road terminates as it becomes the A1134 and minor routes continue into Cambridge. To rejoin the A1307 from here you may use the ring road (A1134) around Cambridge to the junction, but there are some routes through Cambridge city centre. Once on the A1307 again the road heads south east out of Cambridge signposted to Park and Ride and Haverhill and northbound to City Centre. As the road continues out of Cambridge it passes Addenbrooke's Hospital well known for its excellent students and care. The road then passes Babraham Park and Ride. Green buses may be seen from here in Cambridge. The road continues through the Gog Magog hills and past Wandlebury country park. The road then passes the Babraham business park and carries on to Fourwentways, an interchange with the A11 and services provided by Little Chef and a hotel by Travelodge.[1] After passing Little Abington and Hildersham, the road passes Linton on the south side with the B1052 providing access to the village centre and goes southbound to Saffron Walden and Linton Zoo, popular local tourist attraction.The road then terminates at Haverhill in Suffolk. Many fatal accidents have occurred along the route, particularly between Little Abington and Horseheath (close to the Cambridgeshire/Suffolk border), leading to frequent pressure from regular users to have safety improvements added. Mostly, council officials have been reluctant to spend precious resources on this, although campaigning has been growing momentum in recent years.
