A14 Works – Junction 37 - 40

Highways England is undertaking necessary improvement works on the A14 between junction 37 and junction 40 to resurface the carriageway and replace road markings and studs.

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

The work is planned to start on Wednesday 11 September for approximately 3 weeks and will require overnight closures of the A14 between the hours of 8pm and 6am on weekdays only.

Traffic Restrictions

In order to minimise the impact on local communities and road users, we will only divert traffic onto local roads when absolutely necessary. We have consulted closely with Suffolk County Council to agree the most appropriate diversion route, which is highlighted on the enclosed map. Access for emergency vehicles will be allowed at all times.

The following road closures will be in place between 8pm and 6am on weekdays only.

• Closure of the A14 eastbound junction 37 entry and exit slips from Friday 13 September to Thursday 19 September (Diagram A & B) • Closure of the A14 eastbound between junction 38 and junction 43 from Tuesday 24 September and Tuesday 1 October (Diagram C)

This scheme will also require eastbound lane closures along the A14 throughout the duration of the works.

Due to the nature of the work being carried out some noise and light disturbance is unavoidable. We will however attempt to keep this to a minimum.


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.
