A14 Bar Hill and Swavesey Junctions

Published: 01 October 2020

Bar Hill
Work has progressed well at Bar Hill junction, however we have some final remedial and finishing works to complete in October. 

In the week commencing 5 October, remedial works will be carried out on day shifts.  In order for the work to be carried out safely, lane closures will be in place on the junction. At all times, there will be one lane open and operational around the junction.

In the week commencing 12 October, the team will move to night closures. For 3 nights, Monday 12 to Wednesday 14 between 9pm and 6am, the A14 eastbound entry slip will be closed. Part of this work is to replace barrier that was damaged in a road traffic collision.  The westbound entry slip will then be closed for 2 nights, Thursday 15 and Friday 16 between 9pm and 6am.

Following final inspection, which is scheduled for late October, and all being well, we will finally be able to remove our permanent traffic management throughout the junction. If the opportunity arises to remove the traffic management sooner, then we will do.  Please note that depending on the results of the inspection we may need daytime traffic management to undertake corrective works.

Please may we take this opportunity to reiterate our appreciation for your patience while we work to complete Bar Hill junction. Bar Hill junction has been one of the most complex sections of the project so we hope this update is a light at the end of what has been a rather long tunnel!

We will issue a final update before the end of October to give you confirmation of when the permanent traffic management at the junction will be removed.

The overnight work on the overbridge is due to be completed as scheduled this weekend.  The traffic management on the A1307 approach to Swavesey roundabout will stay in place for one week longer, until the weekend of 10th October.  This is following a recent inspection identifying some snags that need fixing before we can remove the traffic management. Once this is complete, our works will be finished at Swavesey junction.
