Work is due to commence on St Audrey Lane in St Ives next week to widen the footway on the south side and convert it into a shared use cycleway and footway.

Cambridgeshire County Council will begin the work to widen the existing footway to 3 metres, utilising the existing verges between Ramsey Road and Nursery Gardens, on Monday 17 September. These works are likely to last for up to eight weeks.

Due to safety reasons, the work will be carried out under lane closures and temporary traffic lights between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

Guidance for access to premises within the lane closure areas will be advised by the onsite workforce. Every effort will be made to keep noise and disruption to a minimum, and the County Council would like to thank residents in advance for their cooperation and understanding during this work.

Further information including the exact location and dates of all three phases of the work, plus FAQs for residents, can be found on the dedicated webpage:

As with all work on our highways, this schedule is weather dependent and poor weather could result in delays. Changes to the work schedule will be posted on the webpage. You can also follow @Cambs_Traffic on Twitter or check local signage for updates during these works.
