Nearly £5million is planned to be spent on highway maintenance across seven projects in Cambridgeshire.
Funding for the schemes was approved by Cambridgeshire County Council at a highways and transport committee meeting yesterday (January 25).
The schemes had previously been approved, but due to each project exceeding £500,000, further approval for funding was needed from councillors before the works could go ahead.
In total, the schemes will cost £4,910,463.
The seven projects are:
- Hillrow Causeway, Haddenham – Carriageway reconstruction – £600,000
- Mildenhall Road, Littleport – Carriageway reconstruction – £902,000
- Wimblington Road, Manea – Carriageway recon/recycle – £640,000
- Cromwell Road, Wisbech – Carriageway resurfacing – £679,463
- Hod Fen Drove, Yaxley – Carriageway reconstruction – £523,000
- Oilmills Road, Ramsey Mereside – Carriageway reconstruction – £646,000
- Royston Road, A505 Duxford – Replace safety fencing – £920,000
All of the committee councillors agreed to approve the funding for the schemes.
