Traffic & diversions

There will be two weekend closures south of the Guyhirn roundabout in January for resurfacing and road repairs. These will be from 8pm on Friday 14 to 6am Monday 17 January, and for the same times from Friday 21 to Monday 24 January. Northbound traffic will be diverted to take the A605 westbound through Whittlesey towards Peterborough, then take the A1139 and the A15 north to pass Peterborough, and then the A47 eastbound through Thorney to reach the Guyhirn roundabout. Southbound traffic will follow this diversion route in reverse. If you are a resident and need access to and from your property, please speak to the operative at the closure point and they will escort you to your home.


For the safety of the public and our workers, we do need some road closures 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.

Temporary traffic lights

Three-way traffic lights will be in place on all approaches to the Guyhirn roundabout from Sunday 8th August – Friday 13th August, 8.00pm – 6.00am.

Lane Closures

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.
