Swavesey Junction – Night time closures 1st & 2nd June

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 and Swavesey/Boxworth.

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.
