27 and 28 July 2019 (2nights): Westbound up and over and Eastbound – Pylon installation
31 July 2019 (1 night): Westbound up and over and Eastbound – Pylon installation
Over the upcoming weekend the pylons for the new Non-Motorised User Bridge will be moved down from where they are being constructed at Bar Hill down to Swavesey (you’ll have seen the mysterious white structures taking shape up there). They will be moved overnight due to their size and lifted into place using a 500T crane, there will also be closures to allow for the installation of the bridge decks and for the attachment and tensioning of the supporting cables.
During the night works Westbound traffic will be routed up the off slip for J28 Swavesey/Boxworth/Cambridge Services and then back down the on slip, just around the southern edge of the new abutment.
Unfortunately we will need to have full overnight closures for Eastbound traffic from St Ives J26, as we can’t bring traffic under the bridge while it is being installed and there isn’t an up and over diversion route.
Anyone wanting to access businesses or homes within the night closure should present themselves to the Traffic Management team at Swavesey as usual and will be escorted in.
