A14 westbound junction 42, Bury St Edmunds to junction 38, Kentford: resurfacing works

I write to inform you that Kier will be completing resurfacing works at the above location on behalf of Highways England. Previous surveys have identified the need for maintenance works in this location, for road safety reasons.

We plan to complete this work over two nights, from Monday 26 March, with working hours of 8pm until 6am, weather permitting. A full westbound closure of the A14, between junctions 42 and 38, will be in effect during these works

We advise motorists to allow extra time to complete their journey whilst using the diversion route. We encourage drivers to stick to speed limits and follow appropriate signage. We would be grateful if you would share information locally about the works.

Diversion route

Traffic will be diverted from the A14 westbound at junction 43 via the A134 northbound towards Thetford, A11 southbound towards Newmarket, before re-joining the A14 at junction 38.

The map below shows the westbound closure and strategic diversion route.
