A14 partially blocked after lorry crashes into barrier

Two lanes of the A14 Eastbound near Cambridgeshire[1] were closed after a crash in the early hours of Friday (July 5). The incident was reported to have taken place at around 2am.

A lorry collided with the central reservation, damaging the barrier and leaving debris on the road. This had an impact on traffic between Junction 37 in Newmarket[2] and Junction 38 in Kennett.

A photo posted to social media showed the extent of damage that was caused. One of the lanes has since reopened, although another remains closed throughout the morning while emergency barrier repairs and clean-up take place.
