A14 Closure 30th - 31st August 2017 Thursday

Posted: 25/08/2017

Please be advised of the forthcoming closures:

The A14 will be closed on the nights of Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st August between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. for installation of a temporary bailey bridge. This closure, which will affect traffic travelling between Godmanchester and Girton, is necessary to ensure we can safely push the bridge into place. The temporary bridge will be situated to the west of junction 28 near Swavesey and will allow works traffic to travel over the A14, between sites to the north and south, without disruption to drivers.

During the closures, eastbound traffic from Godmanchester will be able to exit at junction 27, Fenstanton, after which point the road will be closed. Similarly, local westbound traffic will still be able to exit the A14 at junctions 28,29 and 30. No access along the A14 between junctions 27 and 28 in either direction will be possible.

Diversions between Godmanchester and Girton will be as follows:

Eastbound: take the A1198 to Caxton Gibbet, then the A428 to re-join the A14.

Westbound: take the A428 to Caxton Gibbet, then the A1198 to re-join the A14.

The image below shows the embankments we have created and the temporary bridge which will be pushed across the A14.
