A14 central lane will be closed in both directions between junctions 32 and 33 next week (Monday 24 – Sunday 30).

Highways England are carrying out topographical, drainage, pavement, existing services and street lighting surveys ahead of main construction starting on a scheme to improve the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon.

Surveys are taking place along the whole of the scheme route.

This includes the land where the new Huntingdon southern bypass will be built and the existing A1 and A14 that form part of the scheme.

Surveys of the existing route will require lane closures in both directions and, wherever possible, will take place at night only (usually between 8pm and 6am) to minimise any disruption to traffic.

In addition, the A1 northbound between Brampton Hut and Alconbury will be closed overnight on Thursday 27 October.

Investigations and repairs to the drainage system of the A14 between junctions 32 (Girton – M11 interchange) and 35 (Stoke cum Quy) are also being investigated.

Highways England will be working off the road during the day clearing vegetation and re-profiling drainage ditches.

There will be lane closures and slip road closures between 8pm and 6am while work is carried out, with all works on weekdays only.

Next week the A14 central lane will be closed in both directions between junctions 32 and 33.
