The road works include an outbound lane closure between Long Road and the Addenbrooke’s roundabout with a short diversion via Queen Edith’s Way and Fendon Road. The city-bound lane will remain open to general traffic throughout the works. The works will be carried out six days per week (Monday- Saturday) and occasional work may occur on Sunday.
Permanent traffic lights will replace the temporary traffic lights that are currently in operation at Hills Road/Long Road in June, which will ensure the traffic is managed more efficiently and effectively during the road closure.
Mike Davies, Team Leader for City Deal Cycling Projects said: “This is an area of road that is extremely busy for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. The improvements underway will make walking and cycling journeys far safer and more enjoyable, and we hope that this will encourage others to consider walking or cycling, reducing the amount of traffic on the roads in this growing part of the city.” Further information on the Hills Road to Addenbrooke’s scheme can be found here
