Starting September 2018, Cambridgeshire County Council will carry out carriageway resurfacing at 17 locations across the county. View information for local residents.

The roads selected as part of this package are suffering from surface deterioration, cracking or joint failure which is leading to increasingly frequent potholes. Many are at the end of their usable life. Most of these works will require a full or overnight road closure. 

Work schedule

As with all our resurfacing works, the timings and dates for these works are weather dependent and can change at short notice. Please keep an eye on this webpage for schedule changes. You can also follow our twitter page @Cambs_Traffic for updates on the day or keep an eye on local signage for more information.

The below map shows exactly where the works will be taking place, along with the extent of road being treated, dates and times. You can also view the information as a list by district.

What will the work involve?

For this work, we will be using innovative techniques never tried before in Cambridgeshire to improve the road condition, minimise travel disruption and reduce the need for future road maintenance. By using our own material created specially for these roads and recycling old material, we are working in a more environmentally sustainable way while reducing our project costs.

How will local residents be affected? 

I live on one of the roads that will be closed, how can I get access during the road closure? Our contractors will allow you access to and from your property. Properties whose access is directly impacted will receive a letter from us shortly before the works start. This letter will include a resident pass. Please show this pass to staff on site at the point of closure so they can allow you through. 

During the work, we ask all residents to not park their car on the road that is due to be resurfaced as we will need to resurface the full width of the road.

I regularly commute using a road that will be closed, how can I get access? Commuters will not be allowed to pass through while a road is closed so please follow the signed diversion route or use alternative roads.

For some of the more busy routes, we will not close the road. For safety, all drivers will need to wait to be escorted through the works by a convoy vehicle. This may result in significant delays to your journey so we recommend commuters avoid the road if at all possible while the works are underway.

Will there be a lot of noise during these works? Unfortunately, some noise will be unavoidable. We will be monitoring the level of noise on site however if you have specific concerns about noise, please contact us below.

Who can I contact for more information about works on my road? These works are all being carried out by our contractor Tarmac. If you have a specific concern, please contact us at  [email protected] or call the on site team on 074 83395881
