Major route through Fenland facing overnight closure as part of �350,000 improvement plan

MAJOR disruption- including overnight closure- can be expected as a �350,000 improvement plan for the A141 through parts of Fenland is carried out.

Overnight work to repair and resurface two stretches of the A141 will start on June 20 and take until mid-July to complete.

The first repair work will be carried out at the Isle of Ely Way, Wimblington, at a cost of �190,000.

Contractors working on behalf of the County Council anticipate this part of the work will be finished by July 2. They will then move on to the March Road, Rings End length of the A141, between the A47 and A605. Again the road will be repaired and resurfaced at a cost of �160,000. Work will take place for two weeks from July 4.

Diversions will be set up for the Isle of Ely Road work and traffic will be controlled by stop/go boards during the March Road, Rings End phase of work. But drivers are being warned that some disruption is inevitable and they should find an alternative route or allow extra time for their journey.
