A14 roadworks, near Stowmarket, from Haughley to Tothill, scheduled for series of overnight closures as work moves into final stages





A series of overnight closure are scheduled as part of the ongoing A14 works near Stowmarket.

National Highways said it is moving into the final stages of the reconstruction scheme between junction 47a, Haughley, and junction 49, Tothill.

The closures will allow Highways to carry out final resurfacing, line marking and finishing work on both the eastbound and westbound carriageways.

In an online statement, it said: “We apply the final road surface at the last stage to ensure it isn’t damaged during the construction work.

“This also maximises the life of the road surface and ensures a better quality of finish.

“In the meantime, you might experience some unevenness or bumps on the temporary surface.”
