Looking forward to seeing what the next map update brings. A 12 mile section of the new A14 is now open 12 months early (and causing chaos). Driving along there the other week, it seems that the road is on the current map, just not activated. Rather than driving through fields as I usually do the pointer showed a road, just wouldn't route down it. Still plenty of work to be done around the Cambridge area though and existing roads being removed around Huntingdon. Could be a while until it catches up, although Google and Waze already have them in action.

The Google map view has not been updated to show an actual photo of the road, so congrats to Google for superimposing the track of the new road on the old earth view.

The maps in my BMW also show the road and will guide you down it once you are on it.
