- Credit: Archant
Work to repair a section of Ramsey Road (B1040) started yesterday (Tuesday) and will continue for the next four weeks.
This next phase of the drought damaged roads repair scheme is likely to last up to four weeks, and will involve major road reconstruction - which will include making deep repairs down to the foundation layers.
Work will be carried out during the day, Monday to Friday from 7.30am until 5pm with weekend working where required.
However, due to the extensive nature of the repairs the road will need to be fully closed for the whole duration.
A signed diversion route will be in place and access to properties for local residents will be maintained.
The work, which is being dealt with by Cambridgeshire County Council is one of 21 sections of raid that are being fixed due to drought damage. The work collectively is expected to last until November.
