A1307, junction 24 – slip road lighting renewal

 

Earlier this year, we started work to renew the lighting on the A1307 slip roads at junction 24. We wasn’t able to complete all the works we needed to complete the project. We plan to complete this work over 2 nights on Monday 21 November and Tuesday 22 November, between 8pm and 5am, weather permitting.

 

Closures and diversions

To carry out the work safely, there will be a lane closure on the roundabout at junction 24. We’ll also need to close each of the slip roads, which will be done 2 in phases, as set out in the table below:

Community Gritting Scheme

Message from Cambridgeshire County Council:

This is a request for winter volunteers for this winter season 2022-2023.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the volunteers that took part in our Community Gritting Scheme last winter.

 

For those hearing about the Community Gritting Scheme for the first time, this is a scheme where Local volunteers can help to keep their community moving in freezing weather. Under this scheme, the parish or town council decides on specific routes in their area which are important to the local community and agrees them with the county council.

 

I will need a form for each of your volunteers, including those who have volunteered before.  The form is required annually ensure our health and safety standards are being met.
