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.
