Highways England is undertaking necessary improvement works on the B645 Kimbolton Road / B1048 Crosshall Road bridge above the A1. Works will include the replacement of joints, kerbs, road markings, studs and improvements to the road surfacing.
These road improvements are necessary to maintain the strategic road network along the A1. These safety improvements will add benefits such as a better road surface and an improved journey for road users.
The work is planned to start on Monday 9 September for approximately 2 weeks and will require two way traffic lights as well as a 24 hour closure of B645 Kimbolton Road / B1048 Crosshall Road at Crosshall bridge, followed by overnight closures of the A1 northbound entry and southbound exit slips between 8pm and 6am on weekdays only.
In order to minimise the impact on local communities and road users, we will only divert traffic onto local roads when absolutely necessary. We have consulted closely with the local authority to agree the most appropriate diversion route which is highlighted on the enclosed map. Access for emergency vehicles will be allowed at all times.
The following road closures will be in place.
• Closure of the B645 Kimbolton Road / B1048 Crosshall Road at Crosshall bridge from Tuesday 10 September 6am to Friday 13 September 6am (Diagram A) • Closure of the A1 northbound entry slip on Friday 13 September between 8pm and 6am (Diagram B) • Closure of the A1 southbound exit slip from Monday 16 September to Thursday 19 September between 8pm and 6am (Diagram C)
Pedestrian and cycle access across the Crosshall bridge will be available for the duration of the works.
Due to the nature of the work being carried out, some noise and light disturbance is unavoidable. We will however attempt to keep this to a minimum. The works will be intermittent, there will be times when there are no visible works taking place. This is due to us having to wait for surface cooling before further work can take place.
Please note that these works are subject to weather conditions and dates may change. Notices onsite will provide the most up to date information. Should there be a requirement to significantly re-programme the work, a further notification will be issued.
