National Highways plans A14 closure ahead of rebuilding project

National Highways has announced a stretch of the A14 will be closed early next year for the creation of a contraflow while the road is rebuilt.

The work on the road between junction 47A for Haughley and 49 at Tothill will rebuild and relay the carriageway, extending the life of the road for up to 40 years.

National Highways says it will need to be shut in one direction at a time “for a couple of weeks” between Bury St Edmunds and Needham Market to allow for the contraflow to be created. Once it is operating, there’ll be a 50mph limit.

A diversion route, expected to add 40 minutes to journeys, will be introduced while the contraflow is put in.
