Peterborough City Council is embarking on a lengthy schedule to repair drought-damaged roads around Thorney in the next couple of months. Due to deep excavations required, roads will be closed for the duration of the work.

Roads affected are:

B1167 French Drove, Thorney – December 4 for three weeks

B1040 Crowland Road, Thorney – December 4 for one week

B1443 Thorney Road, Newborough – February 5 for one week

B1443 Bukehorn, Thorney – January 10 for one week four days

B1040 Whittlesey Road (North of Thorney Dyke), Thorney – January 16 for two weeks

B1167 Wisbech Road, Thorney – January 8 for two weeks

B1167 New Cut (East Wryde to Wallace Drove) – January 22 for one week

B1167 New Cut (English Drove to French Drove) – January 29 for one week

B1040 Station Road, Thorney – February 12 for one week

A council spokesman said they would be issuing letters to residents within the area of the works as well as advance warning signs.

 

A47 road closures extended to weekend

The A47 will be closed overnight for the next two weekends as well as the ongoing week-day closures.

Highways England says delays caused by bad weather means that extra work during the weekend is needed to catch up.

The A47 will be closed between 8pm and 6am this weekend (Oct 28-29) and next weekend (Nov 4-5).

The closure is between Guyhirn roundabout and New Bridge Lane and will affect X1 bus services.

A47 improvements delayed

Two major road-improvement schemes scheduled for the A47 have been delayed following a government review.

Work to improve the A47 junction at Guyhirn and a scheme to extend the Castor bypass so the A47 is dual-carriageway all the way to the A1 are both caught by the rethink.

The government says too many roadworks had been scheduled to take place at one time and would have caused unnecessary delays.

No start date is given for the two A47 improvements affected, but the delay could be up to two years.
