There has been a flurry of announcements concerning upcoming road closures connected with the A14 improvements. You can read the official wording in the Parish Council area.
Some details are not entirely clear. Here’s what we know about the Bar Hill bridge closure specifically:
For the whole of the week beginning Tuesday 3rd April (Easter week), the bridge over the A14 at Bar Hill will be closed.
Highways England have now published detailed maps showing access at all the local A14 slip roads during the bridge closure. You can see it here.
The Citi5 bus service will not run between Cambridge and Longstanton during the closure. It will run between Cambridge and Bar Hill and a separate service will connect Longstanton to the Park & Ride, Willingham, Swavesey and Fenstanton. Travellers between Longstanton and Cambridge will need to use the Busway services. Details here.
How traffic volumes will be affected remains to be seen. This is a period when schools are out and many people take holidays, so, hopefully, the regular commuter traffic will be less heavy than usual.
