A CAR that overturned on the A14 in the early hours of today (Monday) is still causing traffic problems.
Cambridge police were called to the eastbound carriageway under the B660 bridge at Catworth at just after midnight.
The car had hit the central reservation and overturned.
It is not thought that anyone was injured in the incident.
The Highways Agency has said that there are delays of around 15 minutes in the area.
Officers were also called to a two-vehicle crash on the A1, one mile south of Sawtry, at 7am. One of the vehicles crashed into the central reservation, the other left the road. No-one was injured in this incident either.
The incident was cleared by 7am.
Sergeant Gordon Murray said: “With the current weather conditions it is important people allow plenty of time for their journey and drive to the conditions of the road.”
Motorists are advised to:
Ensure windows are fully de-iced and clear before setting off.
Make sure lights and number plates are free from snow and ice and clearly visible.
Check tyres are in a good condition before setting off.
Carry a blanket and shovel in your car.
If the weather is severe consider whether you need to make the journey? If it is essential make sure you allow plenty of time.
