Roads across 17 locations in Cambridgeshire will be resurfaced as part of a countywide programme of work, starting next week.
The County Council’s package of work aims to improve the condition of roads across the county, which are suffering from surface deterioration.
Work will involve resurfacing full widths of road, with all road markings being renewed once the new surface has been laid. Most of the schemes will require a full or overnight road closure.
The first schemes will be starting Monday 17 September on A1307 Haverhill Road, Mill Road Great Gidding and C89 Hod Fen Drove. The programme is expected to last until early 2019, areas included in the package of work are:
- Mill Road Great Gidding
- C89 Hod Fen Drove
- B1086 Somersham
- B1050 London/ Chatteris Road
- A10 Lynn Road, Littleport
- A10 Littleport Bypass
- A142 Witcham Toll
- A10 Little Thetford
- Lynn Road, Ely
- A1307 Haverhill Road
- Walnut Tree Avenue, Cambridge
- A603 Barton Roundabout and J12 exit on M11
- A1307 Horseheath Bypass
- Fen Road, Milton
- A1307 Cambridge Road (Westbound)

- A1303 Madingley Road
Cambridgeshire County Council’s Chair of the Highways and Community Infrastructure Committee, Councillor Mathew Shuter said:
“We take priority in investing in regular maintenance of our roads to ensure they’re safe for everyone using them.
“We’re working with contractors to find new ways of carrying out maintenance work to increase the lifespan of our roads and reduce the need for future maintenance.
“I would like to thank residents in advance for their cooperation and remind them to plan their journeys ahead of time to avoid delays.”
During this scheme access to properties will be maintained at all times, however there may be a slight delay as any machinery or equipment is moved out of the way.
