Emergency road closures

Information about roads in the county that are unexpectedly and temporarily closed (for example, due to an accident or weather).

Current road closures 

Due to an incident on the level crossing at Heighington Lane the road has been closed by Network Rail. There is no diversion in place and road closure is likely to be in place for 7-14 days due to new level crossing gates being required to make the area safe.
