   Roadworks update - w/c 17 March    15 March, 2019

The contractors will be taking out the old path at the back of the Green today (digging it up and putting down seeded top soil) and removing the barriers, which should improve visibility for drivers. The new path will be usable – it is currently at binder level and will have the final surfacing done when other surfacing is carried out next month.

The traffic management this week is going to be the same as last week, i.e. 3-way lights from 9.30am to 3.30pm, which means further daytime closures on High Ditch Road. Keeping it open would require 4-way or 5-way traffic lights, which is not allowed by the Street Works department as it would lead to even more congestion. Although Street Works are the ones who give permission to carry out the roadworks, they are not responsible for the works (or the length of time they take) or the traffic management itself. They may be contacted on street.works@cambridgeshire.gov.uk if you need any further information.

We understand that all efforts will be made this week to finish the junction works so that High Ditch Road can open fully by Friday afternoon.
