Project information

Overview

These work on the A14 between junction 33 and junction 44 includes bridge maintenance, barrier replacement, drainage, new signs, resurfacing, road studs (cats' eyes) and road lines. The work here is essential and will help extend the lifespan of the road and make journeys safer for motorists. 

Some of this work is already underway and will continue in various phases until Spring 2022. During the road closures we will be carrying out as much work as possible to help prevent the need for further road closures in the near future.

The bridge work will improve the safety, the road surface and lifespan of the bridge.

The safety barrier upgrade will improve safety and prevent cars going onto the road side of the road.

The resurfacing work will improve the quality and safety of the road surface, as well as refreshing the road white lines and road studs (cats' eyes).

The new drainage system will help prevent flooding and so reduce any road closures when during heavy rain.
