  1. Hi.
    Very useful info, thank you, but…
    So is this happening on the 9th or 25th? There are 2 dates here.
    Also, what times are “overnight”?
    Additionally, where is the source of this information, as I can find no reference to it anywhere else.


  2. Looks like the road closure is Cambridge Rd between roundabout and Kings Hedges Rd. The obvious detour (Histon bound) is Kings Hedges to Milton roundabout then A14 to Histon or along Butt Lane if A14 Histon exit is closed. I won’t be going via Stretham and Twenty Pence Rd. That may be the signposted detour recommended for large vehicles. We need to know whether the A14 option will be available, both Milton-bound from Histon and Histon-bound from Milton.

  3. I’ve just looked at the map linked from the web version and it looks like all the A14 sliproads in all directions will be closed. I guess pedestrians and cyclists will be able to walk around the roundabout, even if it’s closed to vehicles.
