Carriageway resurfacing Elsworth and Conington Roads – Road Closures

Cambridgeshire County Council will be carrying out works to improve the road surface on both the Conington and Elsworth Roads between Fenstanton and Elsworth.

The work is planned to commence on the morning of Wednesday 8th of November 2016 and will take up to six working days to complete.

In order to facilitate these works it is necessary to put in place a temporary road closure during weekdays between the hours of 08:30 and 15:30. A full diversion route would be in place during this time although access will be maintained to properties at all times. A copy of this diversion route can be seen on the parish council noticeboard.

The above schedule; however, is subject to change in extreme circumstances
