Weeds are being cleared on the A14. This will be done during the day between Monday, may 8 and Friday, May 12.

A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon:

Early preparatory construction work on the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon scheme has been underway for a number of months, and construction of the new road has now started. We are currently carrying out a variety of tasks for which we need to close lanes or carriageway on the A1, A14 and some local roads, usually overnight between 8pm and 6am, unless otherwise stated. A clearly signed diversion route will always be in place for closures. The work includes:

Creating safe crossing points for plant on a number of local roads;

Installing access points to our construction compounds;

Taking core samples of the existing A1 and A14 carriageways to help us plan construction;

Clearing sites next to the live carriageway of vegetation;

Installing CCTV and average speed cameras;

Installing information boards;
