Traffic & diversions
For the safety of the public and our workers, we will need some road closures when we start our work and then in autumn 2021 for resurfacing. Traffic will need to use the diversion routes that are provided on this page.
Some of the diversions may be long, but we will aim to only close one arm of the roundabout at a time and limit road closures to night times between 8:00pm to 6.00am. We will provide more details closer to the time. We will give advanced notice of these road closures on the project website, via social media and early warning road signage. We will share regular progress updates with stakeholders, local councils and residents.
Please check for possible road closures and plan your route ahead of your journey.
To carry out our work safely, we’ll need some overnight lane closures (8.00pm – 6.00am) between 12 April to 30 April 2021 inclusive. Traffic will still be able to use the junction and there will be temporary traffic lights and road markings.
During these dates we will be temporarily removing the existing ‘keep left’ bollard and the island kerb at the exit of Gull Road/A47. Removing these will allow traffic to turn right when the roundabout is closed for our work. Changing the turning out of Gull Road will help reduce congestion during the roadworks. In addition, we’ll put in safety barriers so that we can start removing the existing roundabout.
Overnight road closures
We’re now planning for several overnight road closures to the roundabout in May 2021, this includes:
- closure of A47/Fenn Road from existing Guyhirn roundabout to Gull Road/A47 junction with no access through the junction between 8.00pm and 6.00am over two nights.
- closure of A141 entrance and exit Guyhirn roundabout with no access through the junction between 8.00pm and 6.00am for one night.
We will advertise the closure dates on signs at the roadside two weeks ahead of the closures to give drivers advanced notice.
