When A14 is shut detoured vehicles including artic lorries are going through Brington village. Must be caused by sat BACS, Please put sign up stopping large vehicles passing through village. Highly dangerous as we only have narrowed street.

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways regarding traffic diverting through Brington village when the A14 is closed.

    When we close the A14 we would liaise with local authorities to agree on a diversion route. We believe that putting signs on our network wouldn't stop users from diverting after they have left the A14.

    We believe the best thing to do would be to direct this over to the local authority who have the ability to put weight restrictions on the roads and put signs closer to the village to stop road users diverting through.

    I hope this helps with your enquiry.

    Kind regards National Highways
