Road And Footpath Repairs And Improvements In St Ives

The County Council is about to invest more than £278,000 in footpath and road repairs and improvements in St Ives.

Contractors will begin work on January 13 to repair and improve the footways between The Rainbow Centre in Marley Road and the Wheatfields Primary School – the £180,000 project is expected to take around 10 weeks to complete.

The work will be carried out in sections with a signed diversion for pedestrians in place. Working hours will be between 8.00 am-5.00 pm on weekdays.

On January 20, work will begin to install traffic calming measures at High Leys, Green Leys and Paragon Road. The first stage of the project will include kerbing and drainage work with vehicles controlled by traffic lights.

But from February 10, the road junction serving all three roads will be closed (as will the three roads) to vehicles while a raised table and two sets of speed cushions are constructed.

The work is expected to take around a week to complete with a signed diversion in operation.

The traffic calming project will cost around £98,000 using Section 106 funding from the developers of the Slepe Meadow housing estate.
