Earith Causeway in Cambridgeshire

Flood alert

River levels are rising at the Earith river gauge as a result of recent rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is expected. We expect flooding to affect the A1123 causeway at Earith. Light rainfall is expected, Monday 18th January, but we expect river levels to remain high for several days. This information is correct as of 15:00 on Monday 18 January. The causeway at Earith has approximately 8 centimetres of water on the road. Due to the uneven surface of the road, water may be deeper in places. The Environment Agency are liaising with Cambridgeshire Highways, who will decide whether to close the road. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses. We are closely monitoring the situation. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, Tuesday 19 January or as the situation changes.
