UPDATED Bar Hill Junction News

6th December 2018

Message from the Bob Pettipher of the A14 Integrated Team

  • The Bar Hill junction change is still planned for this Sunday morning.
  • Following feedback, I have been in discussion with our traffic managers to review the potential for any traffic issues at night time peak flows out of Bar Hill.
  • I have asked for the installation of a single traffic signal just north of the traffic island on the B1050 travelling from Longstanton.  This will be manually controlled.
  • This will allow the traffic travelling from this direction to be held for short periods allowing traffic travelling out of Bar Hill to have easier flow onto the island during that time.
  • The procedure will be monitored to measure its effectiveness and adjusted if appropriate.

Bar Hill Junction News

30th November 2018 

We have had some news about the Bar Hill Junction and a change in traffic movements which is to be implemented on the morning of Sunday 9th December at around 6am.  A14 Integrated Team has described the changes as follows:

  • This will see the opening of a new westbound on slip.
  • The new slip road will run off the road that takes traffic from Bar Hill over the bridge towards Longtstanton and the eastbound on slip road.
  • It will then divert motorists in front of the old Lolworth services from where they filter onto the A14. (Please see attached plan)
  • This will allow us to remove the current temporary slip road and to begin construction work in this area.
  • The eastbound entry slip will be unaffected as will the westbound and eastbound exit slip roads.
  • IMPORTANT: If motorists are travelling from Longstanton direction and wish to travel westbound. They will have to negotiate the island at Bar Hill and travel back towards the slip road.  There is no right turn onto the slip road.

Council Telephone not Working

30th November 2018

Please be advised that following remedial work on the exchange, it appears that our telephone line has been crossed with another number.   Until we know this is fixed, please email to guarantee a message is received at the office.  Thank you

Message from eCops – Bogus Charity Collectors

26th November 2018 

Message from eCops for your information:

We have been made aware of a number of reports of individuals knocking on doors allegedly canvassing for money for the Child Brain Injury Trust. The calls that we have received have raised concerns that strange questions were being asked.

We have been in contact with this organisation this morning. It is based in Oxfordshire, and does not carry out door to door requests for charitable donations.

Fraudsters use the name of genuine and often well known charities to obtain money, and sadly this becomes more common as we head towards the Christmas period. We advise residents not to buy at the door. If you wish to give to charity, please ensure that you are able to make an informed choice, in your own time and be absolutely certain that you are giving to a genuine cause.
