Diesel spill on A14 causes chaos

A diesel spill on the A14 caused traffic chaos Last Friday morning when the road had to be closed.

The spill happened after a collision between two HGVs near Fenstanton. Diesel spilled from one of the lorries which made the road impassable until the spilled liquid had been cleaned up. The road was closed for three hours while teams cleaned up the spill, which happened at around 8am at junction 27.

There were no serious injuries to either of the truck drivers who were involved in the incident, but one of the drivers had to be cut from their vehicle by the fire brigade using specialist cutting equipment.

The carriageway westbound was completely closed to traffic and there were diversions in place on the A428 and the A1198 until the road reopened at just after 1.00pm.

Fuel spill kits

Fuel spill kits are the ideal way to control and soak up spilled fuel products. They have been designed to only soak up fuel spills, while repelling water, which means they can be used in many external applications. The kits are available in huge array of sizes, from kits that can be carried over your shoulder, to kits that are large enough to fit in a trailer so they can be transported to a spill incident quickly.
