Cambridgeshire motorists reminded of A14 closure this weekend
Highways England has reminded motorists that a stretch of the A14 is set to be closed this weekend while an old bridge is demolished.
HE constructed two new bridges in September 2018 and since they were put in place, work has continued on the upgrade at Bar Hill.
The bridges will form part of the new interchange and HE is now planning for the next stage of work at this junction.
A spokesperson for HE said: “To demolish the old bridge, we’ll need to close the A14 from 2am on Saturday, June 22 until June 24.
"During this closure we’ll maintain access to Bar Hill. In addition to completing work on the second bridge, this phase of work will give us space to continue building the new carriageway, the new local access slip road section between Dry Drayton and Swavesey and the new permanent eastbound exit slip road at Bar Hill.”
HE will close the A14 between junction 28 at Swavesey, junction 29 at Bar Hill and junction 31 at Girton between June 22 to 5am on June 24.
But it hopes that the road will open on Sunday night at 11pm, instead of Monday morning.
Motorists are encouraged to use the A428 right through to Papworth Everard and vice-versa as an alternative route.
