From the end of January until mid March 2018, works to improve and in some places, replace the drainage system along High Street in Ramsey will be carried out. The works will take place from Great Whyte to Abbey Rooms Lane. 24 hour traffic lights will need to be in place for the full 6 week duration of the works and parking will be suspended along the High Street between Great Whyte and Abbey Rooms Lane.
Why this work is being done
This capital based maintenance scheme was identified in the Transport Delivery Plan. There have been a number of problems reported with the current drainage system due to growing damage and many of the gullies emptied into private properties. This new system will carry all gullies along the length of High Street between Great Whyte and Abbey Rooms Lane and protect against future flooding.
This work will be carried out in five phases from 29 January until 8 March 2018.
