A14 Junction 32 (Histon) to Junction 31 (Girton): Westbound Repair Works

There is going to be substantial patch work to fix problems with the A14 between junctions 32 and 31 starting on the 1st September - this includes two nights of closures which will no doubt substantially affect traffic.

The details of the works are reproduced from the letter below;

"On behalf of the Highways Agency, I am writing to inform you of overnight repairs to the westbound carriageway of the A14 Trunk Road between Junctions 32 (Histon) and 31 (Girton).  The works will involve patching to worn out sections of the carriageway.

The works are due to commence on 1 September for 2 nights.  The working hours will be between 

8.00pm and 6.00am Thursday night
8.00pm and 8.00am Friday night

During the works it will be necessary to implement overnight closures of the westbound carriageway between Junction 32 (Histon) and Junction 31 (Girton). A signed diversion route will be in place for traffic wishing to travel westbound on the A14.

Through traffic wishing to travel westbound on the A14 will be diverted onto the A11 southbound at Junction 36 (Nine Mile Hill) to join the A505 westbound at Abington. Traffic will be directed onto the M11 northbound at junction 10 (Duxford) to re-join the A14 at junction 31 (Girton).

The A14 westbound carriageway will remain open between Junction 35 (Stow cum Quy) and Junction 32 (Histon) for local traffic only.

Access will be maintained at all times for Emergency Services.
