Share this article:share on twitter share on facebook

Week commencing Monday 26 February 2018

A14 Orwell Bridge to J62  Westbound carriageway repairs between junction 59 and junction 57 continue this week.  Work will take place overnight between 8pm and 6am.  A clearly signed diversion will be in place via A154 Garrison Road, High Road, Felixstowe Road and the A1156.

Work on the eastbound carriageway is due to be completed this week and we will be commencing work on the westbound carriageway immediately.

We plan to start work on 22 January and we plan to be finished on 2 March.

We will be working overnight between Monday and Friday 8pm – 6am.

Completion of the eastbound carriageway works took longer than originally anticipated due to a number of additional repairs being identified. The westbound carriageway also requires significant repairs and details of the planned closures and diversion routes are shown below 

Traffic restrictions

To complete this work safely and minimise disruption to the travelling public there will be overnight closures in place on the parts of the A14 between junction 55 and junction 62.

We are aware of the considerable disturbance to local residents caused by diverted traffic and sincerely apologise for this. We are endeavouring to complete these works safely as quickly as possible.
