A1 closure 26-29 October

posted 26 Oct 2018, 11:52 by N Day   [ updated 31 Oct 2018, 03:47 ]

Please note that the southbound A1 will be closed continuously ALL THIS WEEKEND between Alconbury and the A14 J21 (Brampton Hut). The closure will take place from 9pm TONIGHT until 5am on Monday 29th October, and is due to the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon upgrade works. The diversion will take traffic along the A14 Alconbury Spur to the Spittals Interchange (A14 J23) , then onto the westbound A14. Link to the road closure:

The A1(M) southbound will be coned down to 1 lane approaching the closure. This is likely to cause some delays, especially on Sunday afternoon & evening.

Also, please note that this weekend’s closure of the A1198 between Godmanchester and Papworth Everard had been cancelled, so the road is expected to remain open as normal.
