PR0752 Proposed Prohibition of Heavy Commercial Vehicles – B1040 at Hilton

This is the next step in the current Local Highways Improvement project to achieve a 24hr HGV ban on the B1040 through Hilton.

Cambridgeshire County Council is publishing this proposal on 24th November 2021. For further details please visit their permanent traffic regulation orders page and select PR0752.

The effect of this Order will be to introduce a Prohibition of Heavy Commercial Vehicles at all times on B1040 Potton Road and St Ives Road at Hilton, between Hemingford Grey/Fenstanton and Papworth Everard. At present that length of road is subject to the same prohibition, but only during the hours of 11pm and 7am.

If you wish to make any comments they should be submitted in writing, as explained in the public notice, to be received no later than 17th December 2021.

Hilton Parish Council would like to urge all parishioners to comment in support of this application, in writing, to Steve Cox, Executive Director, Place & Economy, or alternatively

Footpaths & Bridleways

We are very lucky in Hilton to be surrounded by a network of footpaths and bridleways, leading to some lovely walks. Unfortunately, a small minority of people are straying from the established paths and walking around, and sometimes even across, farmer’s fields. Many fields have a grass margin in the headlands, but these are for wildlife corridors and not to be used as footpaths. Please stick to the signposted footpaths and bridleways and enjoy your walk!
