A14 Closures for next week (week 11)
There will be overnight closures on the A14 and A428 for the installation of the narrow lanes. I expect that the signage will be the usual unhelpful minimum and the diversions frustrating. Once the installation of CCTV and speed cameras is completed, work will begin to implement the narrow lanes on both carriageways of the A14. This will mean a reduction in the speed limit to 40mph in both directions. I understand that these speed limits will be rigidly enforced
  • Monday night – install narrow lanes A14 EB & Average Speed Camera calibration
  • Tuesday night - install temporary barrier A14 EB & ASC calibration If needed.
  • Wednesday night – install narrow lanes A14 WB & ASC calibration
  • Thursday night - install temporary barrier A14 WB & ASC calibration If needed.
  • Friday night - install temporary barrier A428 EB

Important Update on Doctor's Surgery Opening time
In this months Bar Hill News there was an entry that mentions a closure of the surgery on 16th March. This closure has now been cancelled and the surgery will be open as usual on that date. The information was received too late for the BHN as it was already printed.

I have given some thought about this and it is becoming clear that the days of finding funds for a skate park equivelent to our previous one are over but, it just might be possible to build our own. I found this and will look further into it as soon as I can and in the meantime I would happily publish any helpful comments - just use the contact page.

    Bar Hill Early History update
    Last Friday, 22nd January 2016, We had a visit from Brian Falk one of the team that was instrumental in the original creation of Bar Hill.
    Brian has passed to us a number of interesting documents and photos from the early days and I will make them available as soon as I can. This may take a little time as I need to digitise a lot of slides.
    Brian has sent us a document that shows the growth of the village from the original 2,500 people to where we are today (4,500). Click here to view it.
    I have copied the first set of 10 original drawings that were used to support the original planning proposal. Click here to view them.
