Some £50,000 worth of work is set to start on Monday to fix an “unusable” St Neots road.

The former mayor of St Neots, Councillor Barry Chapman says the work is "much needed" and that West Street was an "eyesore" to the town.

Cllr Chapman said: "This road has been in the national media many times for how bad it is, it was once described as in 'worse condition than a track in Africa'. It's taken a long time, but we have managed to secure funding and work is going to start on Monday."

The road is set to be levelled out, and changed into a gravel surface road. Work is due to start on Monday and could take up to 20 days to complete.

The work will be funded by donations, including help from housing developer Urban & Civic.
