Road improvement work on a three-mile section of the A1(M) in Cambridgeshire to start a week later than scheduled because of a shortage of construction material.

The Highways Agency says the re-surfacing work on the southbound carriageway between Peterborough and Huntingdon will now start on Thursday 11 September.

The work is at Sawtry, between junction 15 and 14, near Glatton Ways and Wheatsheaf flyover, and is due to be completed in a month.

“The current surface is worn and needs replacing to ensure that users of the A1(M) in this part of Cambridgeshire can continue to enjoy safe, smooth and reliable journeys."
