We have received communication from Cambs CC about the Harston works. As we understand it, the work will not happen during the rush hour, so both carriageways should be open as usual at those times to motor vehicles. The schedule, which may still be subject to change, is detailed in following correspondence:
“Improvements to the shared use footway on the west side of High Street are planned to start on Monday 7th August 2017 with a planned duration of 20 weeks. The extent of work is between Harston Mill and London Road. Work will start at the southern end of the village and then proceed north to London Road.
During work we will need to use traffic management in the carriageway via two way temporary traffic lights. We are expecting there to be delays in the area so please seek alternative routes or plan ahead for your journey. The footway will need to be closed in sections to allow for construction. Pedestrians and cyclists will be diverted to the footway on the opposite side via signal controlled crossings. We would ask that all users follow signage as required.
We will be placing ‘Business Open As Usual’ signs ahead of the road works. If you can think of anything else we can do to assist please let us know.
There will be a Pre-Construction Event on Tuesday 1st August at 4pm in The Village Hall. This will include a presentation of the scheme and will give you the chance to ask any questions you may have.”
