A14 Road closures - updated weekly

Updated Friday 06 December 2019

We have added this information to our website as we feel it is important to residents. This information is provided by Highways England. For further support or to discuss this with somebody, please contact them via the Highways England website.

Construction work on the new A14 Cambridge to Huntington scheme is underway. We are currently carrying out a variety of tasks for which we need to close lanes or carriageways on the A1, A14 and some local roads at times, usually overnight between 8pm and 6am, unless otherwise stated. A clearly signed diversion route will always be in place for closures.

The below information is supplied by Highways England. You will see the dates, number of nights in brackets, followed by the junctions that are closed and a description of the diversions in place. We hope this helps you to plan your upcoming routes.

Please note that it is sometimes necessary for Highways England to undertake unscheduled closures to undertake emergency repairs.

Contact information for your A14 sections stakeholder manager can be found on the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme page of our website.

For specific information about A14 upgrade work that affects Histon, Impington and Orchard Park please see our Histon, Impington and Orchard Park A14 information page.

If you have any issues please contact Highways England using their email address or phone number located near the bottom of Contact Us.
