Weekend Working To Improve Northampton Street In Cambridge

Contractors will be working round the clock over a single weekend to carry out vital improvements to a Cambridge city centre road.

Northampton Street will be closed to all vehicles from 7.00 pm on Friday, August 30, until 6.00 am on Monday, September 2, to allow the work to be carried out with the shortest possible disruption to traffic. If work finishes earlier the road will be re-opened before the original deadline.

The road will be completely resurfaced and any necessary highway repairs carried out between the junctions with Madingley Road and Castle Street. Drain covers and other ironwork in the road will also be replaced or repaired as necessary.

During the project, which is expected to cost around £100,000. A local signed diversion will be in operation and access to properties and businesses will be maintained at all times.
