Important roadworks information

Dear Sir/Madam

A14 westbound junction 47, Woolpit to junction 46, Beyton: resurfacing

 

I write to inform you that we’ll be carrying out essential resurfacing works at the above location. As part of this work we’ll also renew faded road markings at several locations between junction 50 and junction 44.

 

We plan to complete this work over seven weeks from Monday 26 October to Friday 11 December, on weeknights only, working between the hours of 8pm to 6am, subject to weather conditions.

 

Due to the extensive amount of work on this project, we have split these works into three phases.

 

During each phase we will need to close the A14 westbound between junctions 51 and 46 and traffic will be diverted via the A140 and A143, to re-join the A14 at junction 43.

 

Please be aware, during daytime hours there will be a temporary 40mph speed limit in place along the A14 westbound between junctions 47 and 46 for safety reasons.

 

All other closure information and local diversion routes are detailed in the attached documents. 

 

We’ve closely liaised with county, district and parish councillors within the area, to agree the most suitable diversion routes for each phase.

 

COVID19

Please be assured all our sites have strict safeguarding measures to prevent the spread of COVID19 and none of our sites are open to the public. We will be carrying out all works following safety guidelines set by the Government.
