Swavesey Junction Bridge Beam Installation – Night Time Closures
Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd June – two nights
To minimise disruption to road users, the beams will be installed over two
nights on Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd June.
Operations will start at 21:00 hrs (9:00 pm) and owing to the complexity of the
lift, the westbound closure will be extended beyond the usual 06:00 hrs to
allow for removal of the crane from the carriageway.
The westbound carriageway is scheduled to open in the morning at 08:00 hrs
on Saturday 1st June & 08:30 hrs on the Sunday 2nd June.
The closure point will be to the west of the existing junction so that Swavesey
exit will be open throughout the operation to vehicles coming from Cambridge
Vehicles travelling from Huntingdon will be required to leave the A14 at the
A1198 (Godmanchester) junction and travel to the A428 from where they can
join the eastbound A14 or use local roads to reach the junction.
The full schedule is as follows:
Friday 1 to Saturday 2 June – two nights (beam lift)
• A14 eastbound junction 27 to junction 28
• 9pm – 5.30am (both nights)
Strategic traffic diversion: Drivers will be diverted south on the A1198, east on
the A428 to re-join the A14
• A14 westbound junction 28 to junction 27
• 9pm – 8am (Friday night)
• 9pm – 8.30am (Saturday night)
Strategic traffic diversion: Drivers will be diverted west on the A428, north on
the A1198 to re-join the A14
This closure will allow local traffic to access the westbound carriageway to the
villages at junctions 30, 29, 28a and 28 and Cambridge Services and
junctions 25, 26 and 27 on the eastbound carriageway.
