Standstills from junctions 31 to 33.

Traffic was at a standstill westbound on the A14 up to the Girton interchange on Wednesday morning, reaching back as far as the Milton exit at junction 33.

Police confirmed that this was due to a collision between two lorries.

A spokesman said: “Motorists are urged to avoid the A14 at Girton until further notice due to a collision involving two heavy goods vehicles (HGVs).

“Officers were called out to the collision at junction 31 of the westbound carriageway at about 7.25am this morning (Wednesday) and have closed one lane.

To enable recovery of the vehicles, the M11 slip road has been closed and diversions put in place via the A14 and A428, therefore motorists are urged to avoid the area where possible, or expect long delays.

Both drivers of the HGVs suffered minor injuries.”
