Highways England has released a schedule of planned roadworks set to take place across the region from today (Monday) until Sunday.

A1(M): emergency road surface repairs

Cambridgeshire County Council plan to carry out emergency road surface repairs on the junction 17 roundabout.

The works will begin at 8pm on January 25 and finish at 8am on January 27.

These works are Cambridgeshire County Council works and not Highways England works, however the A1(M) is being used as a diversion route. Road users will not be able to travel from east to west across junction 17 due to this closure. A clearly signed diversion route will be in place

A1, Buckden: landscaping works

Work to remove vegetation and planting on the A1 between Buckden roundabout and High Street/Wolsey Gardens, in both directions, starts January 21, lasting five nights and four days.
