Drivers are being warned of further overnight closures on the A14, which will start from Monday (June 10). This will be the final series of closures at junction 37, near Newmarket in Suffolk, before the road fully reopens, National Highways has said.

Following work to alleviate flooding caused by high groundwater levels, National Highways have said their team will implement three overnight closures. A spokesperson said: "Since flooding began in March, over 15 million litres of water have been extracted. Recently, work was conducted on lane 1 to facilitate the installation of a piezometer, which will serve as a warning system to monitor groundwater levels."

The A14 eastbound and entry slip to the junction will close from 8pm to 6am on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (June 10, 11, and 12). Drivers have been advised to allow extra time for their journeys and follow the diversion route:

- A142 Fordham Road into Newmarket, then A1304 to J38 for the A11. A14 traffic will use the B1506 to J39 Kentford, before rejoining the A14.

The spokesperson added: "We thank motorists and the local community for their patience and cooperation during this period."
