Bar Hill Junction Disruption – 14th-17th September 2018

14th August 2018

Following a meeting with a member of the A14 Integrated Team, I can update you on work to be carried out on the new Bar Hill Junction in September.

The A14 will close at 9pm on Friday 14th September (both directions) under the Bar Hill Junction to enable the 2 new bridge spans (each weighing 1,000 tons) to be placed on the new abutments. These will be moved into place on Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs) over the weekend. This is only the second time this has been done in the UK and specialist teams will be coming over from the Netherlands to carry out the work.

3 of the 4 access points to the junction will remain open. You will be able to get to Tesco/Bar Hill and will be able to access the Bar Hill junction from the westbound carriageway from Cambridge (though not directly when travelling from Histon as the diversion route will be along the A428). The A14 team have advised that anyone using this junction should expect delays. The only journey to be severely affected will be travelling into Cambridge where you will have to find an alternative route as you will not be able to join the A14 at the Bar Hill junction towards Cambridge.

It has been requested that due to safety reasons, people do not go and watch the manoeuvring of the bridge spans. There will be a live webcam to allow people to watch development online (though it will be really slow) and once it has been completed, there will be a time lapse created and made available.

Prior to the work, the A14 team will be at Tesco car park with the mobile visitor’s centre on 3rd and 6th September (mid afternoon to early evening on both days). In addition, there will be a leaflet made available which will be posted on the Longstanton Parish Council website. Paper copies will also be located around the village at various places such as the Village Institute, Co-op, etc.

The junction will reopen in full along with the A14 on Monday 17th September at 6am.

Prior warning – dates have not been finalised, but around October time, the new span at Swavesey will be opening to traffic. Shortly afterwards, the A14 will be closed to allow the old bridge to be taken down. Please keep an eye on our website and the A14 Facebook and Twitter feeds for ongoing information.
