Work to surface parts of Milton Road and introduce new traffic islands to make it safer and easier to cross are set to start begin tonight.

These improvements are being delivered by the Greater Cambridge Partnership as part of the Milton Road project to enhance walking, cycling and bus journeys along a key route in and out of the city.

To enable the work to be carried out safely a series of overnight road closures are required. Access will be maintained for emergency vehicles, residents, buses and people on foot or bicycle. The closures will take place on:

  • Monday 25 March to Thursday 28 March (7pm-6am) from Mitcham’s Corner to Arbury Road.
  • Tuesday 2 April to Friday 5 April and Monday 8 April to Friday 12 April (8pm-6am) from Mitcham’s Corner to King’s Hedges.
  • Monday 15 April to Friday 19 April (8pm-6am) from Arbury Road to King’s Hedges.

The GCP’s contractor, Milestone, has issued letters to all residents affected by the closures.

Thomas Porter, project manager for the GCP, said:

“We apologise for any disruption these closures will cause but by carrying out the work at night we can ensure our contractors and road users are safe while we deliver the upgrades faster.

“Work on Milton Road is due to complete later this year and will include new bus lanes alongside upgraded walking and cycling paths, and enhanced junctions so more people can enjoy better journeys to work, school and to meet their friends.”
