A14 Junction 31 to 32 Eastbound and Westbound Update

The traffic management installation has now been completed to provide the necessary working areas for the construction works to be completed safely. Two narrow lanes are maintained on the A14 through the works area but due to the reduction in lanes widths drivers of HGVs are to use lane 1 only.

The slip road layout on the westbound carriageway at junction 31 (Girton) has also been changed and there are now separate slip roads for the M11 southbound and A14 westbound respectively.

A 24 hour 50 mph speed limit is in place for the entirety of the works and is enforced by average speed cameras. Cambridgeshire Police will be prosecuting drivers who break this speed restriction.

A free vehicle recovery service is in place, as advised by the signs on site, and drivers are advised to remain in their vehicle until assistance arrives.

No works are planned to be completed over the coming bank holiday weekend but the traffic management arrangements will remain in place for safety reasons.

There are no planned overnight road closures programmed in the coming weeks but in the week beginning Tuesday 27th May some overnight lane closures are required on the eastbound carriageway. These lane closures will take place between 2200hrs and 05:00hrs.
