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.
