Please be advised of the following closures:
The A14 will be closed on the nights of Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st August between 9pm and 5am for installation of a temporary bailey bridge. This closure, which will affect trafﬁc travelling between Godmanchester and Girton, is necessary to ensure we can safely push the bridge into place. The temporary bridge will be situated to the west of junction 26 near Swavesey and will allow works traffic to travel over the A14, between sites to the north and south, without disruption to drivers.
During the closures, eastbound traffic from Godmanchester wlll be able to exit at junction 27, Fenstanton, after which point the road will be closed. Similary, local westbound traffic will still be able to exit the A14 at junctions 28, 29 and 30. No access along the A14 between junctions 27 and 28 in either direction will be possible.
Diversions between Godmanchester and Girton will be as follows:
Eastbound: take the A1198 to Caxton Gibbet, then the A428 to rejoin the A14.
Westbound: take the A428 to Caxton Gibbet, then the A1198 to rejoin the A14.
The image below shows the embankment: we have created and the temporary bridge which will be pushed across the A14.
