Boxworth Road Full Closure June 9th – 12th

As part of construction works the A14 Integrated Delivery Team need to install a plant crossing facility across the Boxworth Road.

This crossing point will allow them to take large plant vehicles carrying materials from the borrow pit directly down to the side of the A14 via a haul road. This will remove the requirement for these vehicles to travel along the Boxworth Road and the A14 itself.

In doing this they will be reducing the interface with vehicles travelling on these roads avoiding delays for road users and also reducing the potential of leaving mud/materials from the borrow pit on the road.

The crossing point itself will be located just north of the entrance to Yarmouth farm.

Although the crossing will be installed next weekend it is not likely to be utilised for several weeks and they will advise of the exact date when confirmed.

 When in service the crossing point will be operational between the hours of 7am and 7pm Monday- Friday and between 7am and 12 noon on Saturdays. This facility will be controlled by traffic signals which will be manually operated. During peak traffic flow hours which are deemed as 0730-0900 and 1530-1700 on weekdays, they will ensure that priority is given to normal road users and will not allow any convoy crossing on our haul road.

 The actual installation will require the closure of Boxworth Road for a period between 8pm Friday 9th June and 5 am Monday 12th June. Advance notice boards will be placed on the road advertising the closure and a signed diversion route will be in use. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained.
