Road works to begin on A1 at Stilton

Drivers on northbound A1(M) between Stilton and Peterborough are being warned of delays due to roadworks starting on Friday.

Work will start on Friday July 3 and take place 24 hours a day, seven days a week between Junctions 16 and 17 of the A1(M).

It will include the complete resurfacing of the carriageway, renewal of the markings and improvements to drainage along this section of the A1(M). Traffic sensors will also be installed under the surface to help monitor traffic flows more accurately.

Highways England project manager Michael Freeman said: “Completing maintenance activities like drainage improvements and the installation of traffic sensors at the same time as the resurfacing means we won’t need to return for major repairs for a long time.

“We have planned our work carefully to minimise disruptions to road users and worked closely with Peterborough City Council to agree diversion routes.”

While the work is being carried out, there will be no full road closures during the day.

Lane 1 only will be closed during the day between junctions 16 and 17, with two narrow lanes and a temporary 50mph speed limit in place for safety reasons.

There will only be full closures overnight, as well as 24/7 slip road closures along the same section. During the closures, traffic will be diverted via A15, A1260 and A1139, also using the A47 when the entry slip road at junction 17 is closed.

To help people making journeys during this holiday period, we will suspend work and keep all three lanes open on Fridays.

The work is dependent on suitable weather conditions and dates may be subject to change.
