Contractor Announced For £6.3m Improvements In Cambridgeshire
Emma Kennedy - October 26, 2015

A contract worth £6.3million will see improvements take place in Cambridgeshire providing smoother and safer journeys for drivers.

Improvements on the A14 and M11 have moved a step closer with the appointment of a contractor for the scheme.

Balfour Beatty on behalf of Highways England will be carrying out a package of works on the A14, M11 and A1307 in Cambridgeshire.

The work will involve resurfacing, safety barrier renewal, bridge repairs, embankment repairs, replacing and installing new signs, repairing damaged kerbs and replacing road markings.

The £6.3million contract is part of Highways England’s commitment in the region to improve safety and ensure better journey experiences across the East region’s busiest roads.

Aran Nugent, Service Delivery Team Leader at Highways England, said:

“The appointment of the contractors is a vital part of the delivery of improvements to some of our major roads in Cambridgeshire. This scheme will make journeys better for local people by improving safety for the thousands of drivers that use these roads each day.

We expect the work to start in the winter and be completed by the summer next year. We will work with the contractors on how the works will affect people, but I’d like to assure drivers, where possible, disruption will be kept to a minimum and to bear with us while we continue to carry out this vital work to improve the existing road network.”
