Update: Resurfacing works on New Road

Cambridgeshire County Council has informed us that the resurfacing works are now substantially complete and New Road has now re-opened.  The contractors have advised that they still need to: replace the ironwork on 7 manhole covers, finish off some works to the kerbs and finally complete the line painting.

This work can all be undertaken without road closures using localised two-way traffic control.  They have scheduled these final elements to be done Tuesday 26 October and Wednesday 27 October.

Additional M11 closure – 18 October 2021

Whilst this closure is in place northbound traffic will be diverted off the M11 at junction 8 onto the A120, A10 and the A505 before re-joining M11 at junction 10.

Road closure – New Road and Cantelupe Road 18 October 2021

There will be carriageway resurfacing works on New Road and Cantelupe Road for 3 days from 18 October 2021.

New Road and Cantelupe Rd will be closed to through traffic during the works.  Access to properties will be maintained throughout but patience is requested at certain times as machinery may need to be moved.  A diversion will be in place for all through-traffic, and this is shown on the attached plan in blue.  Road closure locations will be at each end of New Road with access only for residents.  Map of carriageway works 18 October 2021
