DRIVERS using the village of Fenstanton as a rat-run will find it quicker to use the A14 later this summer.

Cambridgeshire County Council is planning to re-surface the High Street for the first time in 10 years from the Low Road to the Cambridge Road junction at the east end of the village. No date has yet been set for the work, but area traffic engineer Richard Kingston hopes it will be finished by the end of September at the latest.

"The work will take just over a week and we shall be using temporary traffic controls - either lights or stop/go boards."

But there is no intention of changing the geometry of traffic calming measures, so the speed humps in the main High Street, which are often the subject of complaints from bus passengers and High Street residents, will stay.
