COUNTY Council highway chiefs have given an early warning of further improvements to roads and footways in Fenland which could cause some local disruption for vehicles and pedestrians.

The road surface at 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, but access will be maintained to properties.

Extensive repairs and reconstruction of the footways in Chapelfield Road, Guyhirn, are expected to take six weeks to complete at a cost of around £80,000. Work starts on August 15, and will use recycled materials to reduce the cost of the project.

Contractors will spend two days repairing the road surface and drainage covers on the A605 in Whittlesey at its junction with Syers Lane. 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 between 9.15am to 3.45pm.
