A605 Oundle Road overbridge (near Kates Cabin)
I am writing with an update on the work we are carrying out on the A605 Oundle Road overbridge, which is located above the A1, near Kates Cabin services. Work includes bridge waterproofing, replacement of joints and parapets, plus drainage works.
Work is progressing and we are expecting to be completed early June 2023.
Upcoming closures and diversions
To carry out the work safely, there will continue to be 24/7 temporary traffic signals on Oundle Road for the duration of the project. This will enable us to undertake works safely during daytime hours.
We will also occasionally need to close Oundle Road Bridge and the A1 overnight. Details of these closures can be found below:
