Cambs County Council announces more Fenland road and footpath improvements

HIGHWAYS chiefs have warned motorists and pedestrians expect delays as it carries out more repairs across Fenland.

Contractors will spend two days repairing the road surface and drainage covers on the A605 in Whittlesey, near the roundabout with the B1040.

The work on August 2-3, which will cost �6,000, will require vehicles to be controlled by four way traffic lights and some delays are likely.

The work will be carried out outside of peak traffic periods with the traffic controls in place from 9.15am-3.45pm.

Following the work in Whittlesey the surface in York Road, Chatteris, will be improved at a cost of �20,000.

The work will be carried out on August 8, with the no through road closed to traffic during the project. Access will be maintained to properties.

Extensive repairs and reconstruction of the footways in Chapelfield Road, Guyhirn, are also planned and expected to take six weeks to complete.
