HE605218 Bulletin two – 28.06.21

Dear Customer,

Welcome to the second bulletin for the A14 junctions 3, 4, 7 and 8 essential maintenance scheme.

This scheme covers the section of the A14 from junction 3 at Rothwell through to junction 8 at Kettering.

Keeping you informed I will be providing updates fortnightly (or as workload requires) on work completed so far and a look ahead to detail our planned works and any road closure and diversion route information.Please do get in touch directly should you have any questions.

What have we been doing?

Since the scheme of work started on 1 June, we have needed to request an alteration to the authorised diversion route for use during full closures of the A14 carriageway. This has been approved and details are below of the new route to be used.

When will we carry out the work?

To reduce the impact on the travelling public, and for safety reasons, we will carry out this work overnight between 8pm and 6am Monday to Friday:

  • Unless otherwise stated there will be a lane 1 closure on the A14 during all slip road works where the main carriageway is open and an approved diversion route in place for those needing to use the slip roads that are closed. These diversion routes are tailored to the specific junction and I will include them in each bulletin as appropriate.
  • During full carriageway closures of the A14 there are approved diversion routes in place. The eastbound and westbound carriageways will not be closed at the same time. These full closure diversion routes are specific to the carriageway closed and should remain the same for the duration of our works on 28 June – 2 July A14 eastbound closed from junction 3 to junction 7

What are the approved diversion routes?

A14 westbound, junction 3 exit slip

During the lane 1 closure, traffic to continue westbound to junction 2, exit and re-join the A14 travelling eastbound, then exit at junction 3 where diversion ends.

J8-J2 westbound closure diversion route 28-30 June & 2July

The A14 westbound closure shall be from junction 8 to junction 2. At J8, traffic will be diverted south onto A43 towards Northampton, traffic will be directed west through Moulton park on the A5076 (signposted to A508) At junction with the A508 they will be directed to travel north towards Market harborough. At A14 junction 2 diversion ends.

What about noise and lighting?

We will keep noise levels as low as possible and will prioritise the noisiest works between 8pm to midnight. More information For more information, or to be removed from the mailing list, please email:
