A14 Additional Road Closure

 Message from the A14 Upgrade Team:

Following up from our email at the weekend, the A14 eastbound between Fenstanton (J27) and Swavesey (J28) will be closed tonight (5th September), 9pm to 6am.

Last week we installed our temporary bailey bridge over the A14 near Swavesey.  This temporary bridge will allow us to move material across the A14 to build the north side of the new Swavesey junction without taking vehicles on the A14.

Whilst the structure is now in place we were not able to completely finish all of the work to make it safe for use to use, consequently we will needed further closures of the east bound carriageway only, between Fenstanton (J27) and Swavesey (J28).

Please be assured that signs will be erected on the A14 to notify drivers of this closure.

We regularly update details of closures specific to our A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme on our Facebook #A14C2H and Twitter @A14C2H pages. You can also find our latest posts by searching #A14C2Hclosures.

Below are our planned closures for this week;

*Tue 5th one night*
A14 eastbound between Fenstanton J27 & Swavesey J28 (9pm-6am)

*Tue 5th to Fri 8th*
A1 northbound between Brampton Hut & Alconbury (each night, 9pm-6am)

*Wed 6th to Fri 8th*
A1 northbound between Buckden & Brampton Hut (each night, 9pm-6am)

*Fri 8th to Mon 11th*
Full weekend closure Buckden Road (Fri 9pm – Mon 5am)

A14 Closures – 30th-31st August

25th August
from Highways England

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.

Consultation Starts on Children’s Centre Proposals

11th August 2017
from County Cllr Peter Hudson

At last month’s Parish Council meeting, I was asked for details on the proposed transformation of children services and agreed that as soon as I had FULL details of the plan I will let them know.  I had hoped to get this into the Longstanton Life, but the deadline was way before the full details became available.  However as with all County Council Consultations, a link to this consultation was placed on the Parish Council Web Site as is all my monthly reports.
