  • Closures and diversions

    To carry out the work safely, we will need to close the A14 and divert traffic as detailed below:

    Phase 1

    • A14 eastbound between junction 52 to 55 - Friday 29 July to Thursday 4 August (excluding weekends). Eastbound traffic will be diverted off the A14 at junction 52 onto the B1113 and join onto the A1071 and then the A1214 before re-joining the A14 at junction 55. (See map 1 below)

    Following phase 1 works, we will be going back to finalise the safety barrier work on the A14 at Needham Market.
