THE notorious Forty Foot Bank road between Ramsey Forty Foot and Chatteris will be closed for periods next week for the start of work on installing �350,000 electronically-linked average speed cameras.
Over the past few years several people have perished after vehicles left the road and plunged into the adjacent river.
The latest earth works, due to start on Tuesday (May 26) will be carried out at three locations along the bank. The narrow road and large earth-moving equipment required for the earthworks make it necessary to close the road during some operations, Cambridgeshire County Council said.
"This phase of the scheme has been programmed for the school holidays when there is traditionally less traffic using the road," a spokesman added. "The closure will not be used during weekday peak hours when traffic flows can be high so, in order to minimise the duration, some works will be carried out over the weekend."
Weather permitting, this phase of the work will be finished by Sunday of next week, May 31. Access for local residents will be maintained and signed diversions set up.
