Dear Resident,

A14 Works – Junction 42 - 47

Highways England operates, maintains and modernises the strategic road network in the East of England. We are committed to making journeys more reliable and ensuring that the region’s roads are fit for now and for the future.

We are pleased to inform you that the following works are due to start shortly.

• Road surface improvements • Refreshment of road markings, studs and signs

The work is planned to start on Monday 23 September 2019 and is programmed to take approximately 3 weeks. Please note that these works are subject to weather conditions and dates may change, notices onsite will provide the most up to date information. Should there be a requirement to significantly re-programme the work, a further notification will be issued.

These road improvements are necessary to maintain the strategic road network along the A14. This will add benefits such as a better road surface, safety improvements and an improved journey for our customers.

Traffic restrictions

We are aware the affect traffic disruption has on our customers and the local community and will only be diverting traffic onto local roads when absolutely necessary. Where we do need to close the A14 and divert traffic, we closely consult with the local authority to agree the most appropriate route and timings. There will be times on this scheme when no visible works are taking place. This is due to us having to wait for surfacing courses to finish cooling so that further work can take place.
