A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet improvements - Next steps in Design - Start of Groundworks Investigations pdf icon PDF 66 KB

Following the recent public consultation on the A428’s detailed design, Highways England have informed the Council that they have started a programme of important ground investigations and surveys. Highways England has produced a Ground Investigations leaflet to explain more details about the tests that will be carried out. However, as the work may be visible to those living and working in South Cambridgeshire, Highways England have provided more details (see attachment) to be circulated to Members and Parishes for info.

The majority of work will take place on private property such as farmland and industrial sites. Any work in public areas will look very similar to normal road works, with barriers around a small section of a pavement or road, with a diversion around it for traffic or pedestrians. Highways England will keep local residents and landowners informed about where they are working.”
