A14 Road Closures: 19 – 20 January 2019

A14 Road Closures: 19 – 20 January 2019 – Beam lift – Swavesey and Bar Hill

Highways England advise that the planned beam lift for weekend of 12th/13th January was unfortunately, postponed due to winds on both Saturday and Sunday and therefore concerns over safely deploying the crane for this operation.

A second attempt will be made this Saturday night 19.1.19 with a contingency date of 20.1.19.

This task will again mean the use of a large crane and will necessitate a closure of the whole carriageway between Swavesey and Bar Hill. The closure is scheduled between 10pm on Saturday 19.1.19 and 10am Sunday 20.1.19.

 Should the Saturday night operation not be achievable due to weather etc, a second attempt will be made on the night of Sunday 20.1.19.  In this event Highways England are only able to keep the carriageway closed between 10pm and 6am.

Both junctions will remain in use. So access to Swavesey junction will be available travelling eastbound on the A14 and access to Bar Hill junction will be available travelling westbound.

Persons travelling in the opposite directions would need to use the approved diversion route of A1198 and A428.

Access to Lolworth village will be facilitated via the normal escort facility at Bar Hill junction, and similar facilities will be available to Hill farm Cottages and the Travelodge from Swavesey junction.
