A10 Kingsmead Viaduct, Ware

Vital renewal works on the A10 Kingsmead Viaduct (between the A414 and A602) start in April with lane closures planned for 12 weeks.

What's happening?

Lane closures will be in place 24/7 from 2 April for 12 weeks. There will be a 40mph speed limit.

The works include:

  • a new central reserve safety barrier
  • concrete repairs to the north abutment
  • repairs to the drainage on and off the bridge
  • new filter drains to the north and south of the viaduct
  • minor repairs and maintenance, including road markings and vegetation clearance.

 

Why is it happening?

The works are required to ensure the viaduct is maintained in a safe and serviceable condition.

We have chosen to do the works at this time because, although there is never a convenient time to do works like this, traffic volumes tend to be lower during school holiday periods.

There are other planned works, including the A602 improvements at the junction with the A10, which are due to start in July. We want to make sure the Kingsmead Viaduct works are completed first. 

We advise cyclists to avoid this road whilst the works are in progress.
