Friend rang me today and said that the A1 would be closed Friday evening.  I have checked on line and it does not show it happening - anyone got any news on this?

I seem to recall it was partially shut 2 years ago along one section, the diversion was well signposted, if a little slow

Every time I leave The Plough on committee nights(Mondays) parts of the A1 are always closed for a good 20 miles or so, diverting A1 traffic off the dual carriageway and down some minor side roads.
The last time, I was heading North and was diverted off some distance off Peterborough, only to find myself around Rutland water..........and that was an official diversion
Any where South of Colsterworth to St Neots can be affected at the drop of a hat

The Highways agency(which I have contacted) can advise of road closures
However they do not know ......well in advance...when closures can occur, but the HA email ansaback system states,........"they can advise and respond to emails within 15 days"

Catch 22
