Additional A14 road Closure BAR HILL
Friday 28 June 2019 from 9pm until Monday 1 July at 5am.
Highways England advise that following on from the successful bridge demolition last weekend they now
need to undertake a further weekend closure of the westbound A14 between J29 Bar Hill to J27
The closure will be in place from 9pm on Friday 28 th June until 5am on Monday 1st July. The Bar Hill
bridge and roundabout will remain open but there will be no access to the westbound A14 from Bar
Hill, local access between Dry Drayton and Bar Hill will be maintained.
They give apologies for the short notice and say consideration was given to delaying the closure by a
week, but due to large events taking place in Cambridge over the weekend of the 6-7 July, which will
include Bar Hill Fete and Festival, a closure is not possible then.
The strategic diversion route for A14 westbound traffic will use the A428 and A1198 re-joining the A14
at J26 Godmanchester and the Girton loop will also be closed to support the diversion route. We are
aware local traffic will know other alternative routes, these will not however be signed as a diversion.
The closure is to enable westbound traffic to be moved to run on the newly built A14 between Lolworth
and Swavesey. During the closure the existing traffic management barriers will be removed, the
remaining layers of surfacing will be laid and temporary white lines painted.
During the closure access to Lolworth will be available as usual via the Traffic Management team at the
This closure will only affect Westbound traffic, during this time the Eastbound A14 will remain FULLY
OPEN between J27 and J31.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and once again they give their apologies for the short
