Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) have informed us of their proposed closure of St Ives Viaduct, A1096, Harrison Way, St Ives over three weekends.  The closures will run from 20:30 on the Friday until 05:00 on Monday morning during the following weekends;


18th March 2022 – 21st March 2022

25th March 2022- 28th March 2022

1st April 2022 – 4th April 2022  

8th April 2022 – 11th April 2022


The reason for the closures are that the bridge joints that were installed in 2017 have been found to have faults within the joints themselves and concrete, and need to be repaired.  This will mean CCC require access to the entire stretch of the carriageway and are looking to minimise commuter traffic by carrying out 24hr works on rotating shifts at weekends.  It is hoped they can complete one joint per weekend, hence the 4 dates.
