Fenland Way in Chatteris resurfaced
The A141 Fenland Way in Chatteris has been resurfaced as part of major projects across the county.
The work started in August and was completed last week. The repairs were carried out to a depth of 125mm, and the materials used were supplied in ‘warm mix’ mode, which reduces the impact on the environment – in this case cutting carbon emissions by approximately 9.5 tonnes.
While the crews were there carrying out the resurfacing and road markings, they also extended sections of the safety barrier. In total, 8,728 metres squared of carriageway was resurfaced using 2,575 tonnes of material.
Cllr Alex Beckett, chair of the highways and transport committee at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: “These major resurfacing projects involve road reconstruction to replace the top layers of the road. It makes a huge difference for users and improves the quality of the roads.
“Our highways team has worked hard overnight to keep the disruption to a minimum, carrying out general maintenance work at the same time, such as vegetation clearance, drainage, signage and road markings.”
