Northbound carriageway works commence Tuesday 27 August for three nights and Southbound carriageway works commence Friday 30 August for four nights. A clearly signed diversion will be in place.

A1(M) Major Maintenance in conjunction with the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Improvement scheme

From 30 August - 24 September 2019 we are carrying out essential maintenance on the A1(M) southbound between junction 14 and Alconbury Interchange and northbound between Brampton and junction 14. 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.

Traffic restrictions - check before you travel

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

Week commencing 26 August 2019:

Full weekend road closures: Southbound closures between junction 14 to Alconbury Interchange

21:00 hours Friday 30 August to 06:00 hours Monday 2 September

Diversion routes are clearly signed throughout the works

Traffic will exit at junction 14 onto the A14(M) and continue to Spittals Interchange where it will join the A14 westbound until it merges back onto the A1 at Brampton Hut junction.
