The works include refreshing worn line markings and the installation of new reflective road studs.

There are four night closures (9pm to 6am) on the A14 westbound Brampton Hut junction 21 to Ellington junction 20 from tomorrow to September 27.

This is due to the £1.5billion A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme, including a major new bypass to the south of Huntingdon and upgrades to 21 miles of the A14.

Work officially started in November 2016 and the new road is expected to open to traffic by the end of 2020.
