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.
We have been asked to share the following message from Stagecoach which includes reinstatement of the Milton Park and Ride service-
“Please find attached a route-by-route overview of service changes being introduced on our Cambridgeshire network from Sunday 20th June 2021. A full set of timetables can also be found on our website here: https://www.stagecoachbus.com/promos-and-offers/east/east-covid19-services”

The following notification has been received from the Cambridge Waste Water Treatment Plant Relocation Project Team.
“We are writing to inform you of some survey work that will be taking place over the weekend at some proposed construction areas for the Cambridge Waste Water Treatment Plant Relocation project.
The survey works will involve the flying of drones, so that we can get better ground level detail to feed into our designs for the plant. The work will help us produce an accurate digital terrain map and digital surface map.
We can confirm that the accredited drone pilots are working with operational authorisation granted by the UK Civil Aviation Authority. There will also be several surveyors walking around the area to establish ground control who will be carrying theodolites and/or prisms. All data gathered is fully compliant with GDPR regulations.”
Work has started to renovate the play area at the Sycamores. Security and safety fencing will be used during the clearance work.
Buckingham Palace has announced the death of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The Parish of Milton expresses deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen, the Royal Family and the extended members of the Royal Household.
The Prince and Queen Elizabeth have been married for 73 years and between them have seen 14 Prime Ministers in office during the Queen’s time as Monarch.
On the Royal Family website, members of the public are asked to consider making a donation to a charity instead of leaving floral and other tributes in public spaces. An online book of condolence is also available for the public to post their personal tributes.
