THE B1040 between Ramsey and Ramsey St Mary's will be closed to through-traffic for the next eight weeks while engineers use an environmentally-friendly technique to resurface it. The three-kilometre riverside road, which has not been re-surfaced for around 15 years, has become badly worn, Cambridgeshire County Council said. The innovative process, which has never previously been used in Huntingdonshire, uses the existing road material, which is broken up and remixed to give a strong base. This is then covered by new surfacing giving the road a new lease of life. The process reduces the number of deliveries to the site, and reusing material significantly reduces the environmental impact of the road reconstruction, the council said.
