Almost a year after this newspaper highlighted Wimblington Road as possibly being one of the worst for potholes in Fenland it is finally set to be resurfaced.

Cambridgeshire Highways has written to Manea villagers over the weekend warning of disruption as part of the road between its Manea junction and Boots Bridge is resurfaced next month - causing it to be closed for a month.

The road, which is pitted with pot holes and is badly cracking up in places, will be closed from January 17 until February 25 with access in place for residents who live within the work site.

Other drivers will face a lengthy detour either turning right at Boots Bridge and travelling via the Sixteen Foot, B1098 and Byall Fen Drove into the village or turning left and travelling via the Sixteen Foot, B1100 and Fifty Road.

Approximately 1.3km of road is to be resurfaced while the road is closed and the letter signed by James Chapman, assistant engineer, highways projects, said: "We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience during the duration of the works.

"Please rest assured that the work being undertaken has been properly planned and will proceed in line with current Public Health England and Government guidelines regarding covid."
