Notification of essential maintenance works on the A14

Notification of essential maintenance works on the A14

The Nation Highways will be carrying out essential maintenance work on the A14, between junctions 11 and 13 near Thrapston. Some of the work will also be on Denford Road/Midland Road, near to the A14 viaduct. During the scheme of work, they will • carry out surveys and joint maintenance on the viaduct. • upgrade some fencing. • clear the existing drainage system and replace drains where required. • carry out improvements to some parts of the drainage system. • clear vegetation on the verges and in the ditches. • carry out new planting in some areas of the verge.

When will the work take place?

The work is planned to start on 26 January 2022 and is expected to be completed by mid-April 2022. The work will be in phases as our works progress, to minimise disruption to local residents, businesses and road users.

How will the work affect traffic?

To maintain a safe environment for the workforce and motorists, we need to use a mixture of full road closures, lane closures, and temporary traffic signals. The planned details are: • Overnight works on the A14 31 January 2022 to 18 March 2022, between 8pm and 6am. Full carriageway, slip road and lane closures. • Daytime works on Denford Road/Midland Road: 26 January to 15 April 2022, between 9am and 5pm. Temporary traffic signals. For all road closures, we'll put in place fully signed diversion routes, which have been agreed with the Local Authority. All carriageways will be open as usual outside of our working times.
