The A14 is suffering from delays after a vehicle broke down closing one lane.

The vehicle has broken down on the westbound carriageway between J32 B1049 Cambridge Road (Histon Interchange) and J31 M11 . A428 (Girton / Cloverleaf interchange).

One out of three lanes are closed.

The A14 westbound carriageway is partly blocked

The A14 is currently undergoing a major £1.5 billion upgrade between the west of Huntingdon to the Milton junction on the Cambridge Northern bypass.

The works have been under construction for a year and are expected to be completed in 2021.

But until then, Highways England have put in place narrow lanes and 40mph speed restrictions on the road.

Using the narrow lanes and speed limit gives the team enough space and safety needed to carry out work without closing lanes.

Highways England said: "During the roadworks, part of a £1.5 billion investment to create an improved route between Cambridge and Huntingdon on the A14, the speed limit has been reduced to 40mph while we are carrying out work.

"Safety is at the heart of everything we do, and weve always been clear that speed cameras are for making journeys safer while narrow lanes are in place and creating a safe working environment for our workers.

"We would like to thank those drivers who are observing the temporary limit."

Update at 12.37 – the road has been cleared.
