A1(M): road markings renewal scheme

Road marking renewal works between junction 8 and junction 10 to be completed under a road closure on weeknights only. A1(M) southbound works continue Monday 2 September, lasting three nights. A clearly signed diversion will be in place.

A1(M) major maintenance

We are carrying out essential maintenance on the A1(M) southbound between junctions 14 and the Alconbury Interchange, and northbound between Brampton and junction 14, until late September. This work is to make sure that the road continues to be safe for motorists to use. During this time, we will be making the lanes on the A1(M) narrower than usual and the speed limit will be reduced to 40mph

To minimise disruption to the travelling public we will carry out this work within existing closures that are taking place for the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme.

Our work will provide a safer and smoother journey for road users and will also reduce road noise as we will be using a very low noise surface treatment. We are also making additional improvements to the safety barriers and carrying out work on the bridge joints as well as gully cleaning and vegetation clearing. Doing this during the planned closure will reduce the need for future closures.

The A1(M) will be closed to traffic on the following dates to enable work to be carried out safely.

From Monday 2 September, lane one will be closed southbound between junctions 14 and the Alconbury Interchange

This section will also be closed from 6am on Monday 2 September until 9pm Friday 6 September

Full weekend road closures

From 9pm on Friday 6 to 6am Monday 9 September

Guided busway closure update

As part of our work to upgrade the A14, we have been widening the bridge over the guided busway near Histon over the summer. To progress this work safely, the busway route and cycle path under the bridge have been closed throughout the summer school holidays.

We will be reopening the cycle path that runs along the busway route on Saturday 31 August as planned. However, due to the challenging ground conditions we encountered during the initial phase of work, we still have a lot of work to carry out at this location and now anticipate that work will complete by early November.

This means that the bus route going into Cambridge (southbound) between Histon and Orchard Park East will continue to be diverted via the Histon junction over the A14 during the closure. People travelling into Cambridge from Histon can board diverted services from the stop on Cambridge Road. More information is available on the Stagecoach and Whippet websites.

Some additional, temporary closures of the cycle path will be required towards the end of this period and people will be kept informed in advance.
