National Highways have advised that they plan to carry out work to improve the biodiversity at 12 sites along the A1307 between Spittals Interchange and Fenstanton. The sites are currently in a poor condition and require improvement to help them thrive. This will include rotovating the sites and planting new greenery to mature and grow over the coming months.
They plan to complete the work overnight on weeknights between 8pm and 6am, weather conditions permitting.
