Road closures in Wisbech, March, Leverington, Manea and Wimblington for resurfacing works
A large resurfacing programme starts next week to help maintain and improve the quality of roads across Fenland.
A number of schemes – which are part of the Autumn Micro Asphalt Surface Treatment Programme – began on Monday and more than £500,000 will be invested in the project, targeting 58 sites in the whole of Cambridgeshire.
Micro Asphalt is a thin pre-mixed material which will be laid over the road surface to prevent damage, improve safety and increase the lifespan of the roads.
The process is weather dependent and requires the road surface to be dry. As a result, planned dates for the work may change at short notice.
All roads are required to be closed in order for these works to be carried out, and where possible, a signed diversion route will be in place. Advanced warning signs will be put out a minimum of 14 days in before the works start.
Access to and from properties will be possible during the scheme.
This may be affected by the type of work carried out at the time and so local residents will receive a letter with more information and are encouraged to speak to teams onsite if they have any questions. People are asked not to park vehicles on the road during these works.
The Highways team onsite carrying out the works will be available to provide advice regarding the scheme and can assist with any access requirements.
Coun Peter McDonald, Chair of the highways and transport committee at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: “Our highways team is committed to maintaining the safety and improving the quality of our roads.”
