We have been asked to share the following message from Stagecoach –
We’ve done our best to hold back fare increases but due to rising costs, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to increase our fares across the East from 8th January 2023. We will continue to offer the same ticket types, but at slightly different prices.
These are the first network-wide fare increases we have made for over four and a half years, since April 2018, and we’ve worked hard to absorb significant cost increases to keep fares below the rate of inflation. The changes will add on average just 39p onto the cost of daily adult bus travel.
Please take a look at the attached booklet [link] for full details on the new fares. Further information will be available on our website from 10am today.
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org ”
We have received the following notification of planned works.
“As part of Urban&Civic’s commitment to invest in local infrastructure to support the new development coming forward on the former Barracks site in Waterbeach, further improvement works are planned to upgrade the pedestrian and cycling infrastructure on Cambridge Road, Milton. These works finish the agreed works undertaken earlier this year.
The works will require traffic management to be in place on Cambridge Road for 24 hours a day for a two-week period between 7th November 2022 and 30th November 2022. Three and four way traffic lights will be in place and will be manned 7 days a week, from 9am-5pm. The traffic management must remain in place continuously as full depth reconstruction requires excavations to stay open outside of working hours.
The works will deliver an improved, safer route for cyclists and pedestrians along Cambridge Road and will connect with the expanded pathway on the A10. They include:
– The construction of a new raised, uncontrolled crossing point at Barnabas Court junction along with the provision of new drainage gullies
– New delineations between kerbs and entrances to Jaws Fish&Chips, Unicorn House and Godden Auto Services to create separation from the carriageway
– New tactile paving at Winship and Coles Road junctions
– Refreshment of various road markings along the High Street, including additional ‘cyclist’ symbols to highlight cycle lane
We apologise in advance for any disruption caused by these works. We have and will continue to make every effort to minimise the impact of the works and will be conducting a door drop note to residents and businesses in the affected area. Our partners Breheny Civil Engineering have also placed the relevant signage in place along the highway in advance of the programme starting.”
- North Section, covering north of the Footgolf to north of Milton Hall
- Mid Section, covering, north of Milton Hall to south of the High Street junction
- South Section, covering north of Barnabas Court to south of Coles Road

We have received the attached notification of overnight roadworks between Junctions 33-37 in both directions for essential maintenance work.
The group was formed last year by representatives from the local Councils, the Village Church, Milton Online, local parents, Milton Surgery Patient participation group & Community Café formed the Milton Covid-19 Support Group to co-ordinate support for people in the village during the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Volunteers are available to help people who are ill and/or self-isolating in the village who may need support with:
– a friendly phone call
– grocery shopping
– picking up medications
– posting mail
– dog walking
If you are ill or self-isolating, and you need support at this time, please contact email@example.com with your name, address, contact number and what you need help with, or telephone 07933 550 989. We will try to put in you in touch with a volunteer who can help you.
We have been notified of upcoming traffic restrictions in Milton for the laying of a new gas main from Milton and onwards through Waterbeach.
There should not be any full closures, but the work will involve one way traffic working with 2 or 3 phase lights and closure of the cycle lane. Access for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians should be maintained throughout. Active work on the trench and pipeline is expected to be during normal working hours Monday – Friday.
The trench is expected to be on the North bound carriageway so cyclist and pedestrians may be diverted onto the East side of the road at times.
We understand that the work will be done in four phases each approximately 6 weeks in duration beginning in July starting on Cambridge Road between Bene’t Close and the Northern end of The Rowans, from there to Butt Lane, then to the junction of High Street/Ely Road, and finally along Ely Road onto the A10. The work is expected to be on the North bound carriage way so cyclist and pedestrians may be diverted onto the East side of the road at times.
The pipes are joined above ground before lowering into the trench. Each phase will be reinstated on completion of the section.
Work is expected to start on 8th July from Bene’t Close. We await confirmation of the subsequent phase dates.
