Flooding has also closed the A1101 Wash Road, Welney. West Delph Road, Whittlesey, also remains closed in both directions. But Low Road, St Ives, which had been closed due to flooding after last weekend's heavy rain, has been re-opened.
There were reports of heavy traffic in several areas of the county this morning with the main one being around the A14 at Brampton eastbound between junction 22 and junction 23; at Godmanchester eastbound between junction 24 and junction 28 and between junctions 31 and 32.
