Major maintenance on A14(M) northbound at Alconbury Interchange
We are planning essential maintenance on the A14 northbound carriageway between
Rusts Lane junction and Alconbury Interchange/A14M-A1M Merge junction 14 to make
sure that it continues to be safe for motorists to use.
Why are we doing these works?
We are required to ensure this section of the A14(M), which we manage on behalf of
Highways England, is maintained to a safe standard. After carrying out surveys, we
found that sections of the northbound carriageway require essential repairs and
maintenance work on the bridge at Alconbury Interchange is needed.
What are the benefits to road users?
Our work will provide a safer and smoother journey for road users. We are also making
additional improvements to the safety barriers, gully cleaning and vegetation clearing.
Doing this during the planned closure will reduce the need for future closures.
When is the work taking place?
8 June 2018 – 7 July 2018
Traffic restrictions – check before you travel
During this time we will be making the lanes on the A14 northbound narrower than usual
and the speed limit will be reduced to 50mph.
The A14 northbound between Rusts Lane and Alconbury Interchange/A14M-A1M
Merge junction 14 will be closed overnight from Friday 21:00 hours until Monday
05:00 hours on the following dates to enable work to be carried out safely.
• Friday 8 June to Monday 11 June
• Friday 15 June to Monday 18 June
• Friday 22 June to Monday 25 June
• Friday 29 June to Monday 2 July
This section will also be closed overnight from 21:00 hours until 05:00 hours on the
following dates.
• Monday 2 July to Saturday 7 July
During these times there will be no access to the A1(M) via the A14 northbound
and the northbound entry slip road at Rusts Lane will also be closed. We would
like to make you aware that this work may cause significant traffic congestion and would
advise you to avoid the area on these weekends if possible.
These works are subject to weather conditions and dates may change.
