More road closures on the A14 have been announced as the widening project between junctions 7 and 9 nears its finish date.

The Highways Agency began the project to add a third lane to the carriageway near Kettering at the end of 2013, and says the project is due to be completed sometime in the spring – although an exact date has not yet been identified.

A number of closures will be taking place between now and the end of April.

Between Sunday, March 29, and Tuesday, March 31, a full closure of the westbound carriageway will take place overnight between junctions 9 and 7.

A similar overnight closure takes place on the eastbound carriageway between junctions 7 and 9 between Tuesday, March 31, and Thursday, April 2.

In all cases, the overnight closures begin at 8pm and end at 6am the following morning.

Another full closure of the westbound carriageway takes place between the same junctions from Tuesday, April 7, to Friday, April 10, and on the eastbound carriageway from Friday, April 10, to Sunday, April 12. Those closures are to allow the erection of gantry signs.

Finally, the Highways Agency has said that some of the traffic management will be removed from both carriageways between April 27 and April 30.

A spokesman said that an exact date for the completion of the work was not yet being announced as the project could be delayed by bad weather.
