Roadworks may last only two days

It is hoped that roadworks in Thorney next week, which will close Wisbech Road for part of the day, should be completed in two days rather than the five days originally projected.

Work will start on Monday (August 21) and was due to last until Friday, with the road closed between 8.30am and 4.30pm.

Peterborough City Council contractors are to resurface the crossroads where Wisbech Road meets Abbey Place and Station Road.

The contractors have said the road will be closed completely for periods, but diversions will be put in place and gatemen will be on duty to direct traffic. City councillors representing the village have now been told work will be completed much more quickly, probably within two days.

It is not clear how the work will affect bus services to the village during the day and conflicting advice has been given by operators.

We hope to be able to give an update tomorrow.

    The confusion over the buses is unacceptable, people need to a decent bus service. It’s poor already, but this lack of information is typical of the attitude of the companies involved.

    I have been trying to get some sense about this for a week. Out of it all I can feel the “mushrooom syndrome” being applied.
    Cllr Steve Allen has been some help but I feel that his hands are tied.
