A £3million project to resurface sections of the A14 in Cambridgeshire will start before the end of October, the Highways Agency has announced.

The work will take place over the next two months and will be carried out in three phases, aimed at improving 12.6miles of the road.

The project, part of government investment in roads, will involve overnight closures, one carriageway at a time. Weather permitted, it will be completed by December 2.

Work on the A14 between the A1307 and the junctions for St Ives (26) and Girton (31) will include carriageway resurfacing and patching, the renewal of road markings and road studs.

Highways Agency project manager, Dave Elwyn, said: “This is a £3m scheme which is taking place to prolong the life of the carriageway.

“The work has been designed to improve the surface of the road and improve safety for road users, while minimising the need for future maintenance works in these locations.

“We ask that drivers take care travelling through the roadworks and along the diversion routes, follow the traffic signs and any instructions of site staff.”
