A14 J31-32 East, and J32-36 West Closures - FEB 9 to 13 8pm to 6am

Between Monday 9 February and Friday 13 February there will be both an Eastbound carriageway closure of the A14 between junctions 31 -32 and also a Westbound closure between junction 32 -36. These will be carried out overnight between the hours of 8pm and 6am. Clearly signed diversions will be in place during the periods of closure as follows:
  • A14 Eastbound Diversion - M11, A505, A11
  • A428 Eastbound Diversion - A1303, M11, A505, A11
  • A14 Westbound Diversion - A11, A505, M11
Two lanes will remain open in each direction throughout the day in order to support the busiest travel times.

A traffic management installation remains in place 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.
