Hills Road is to be resurfaced this month, all the way between Cherry Hinton Road and Fendon Road. This is the result of a campaign by former county councillor Geoff Heathcock – a great result to conclude his time in office!
It is badly needed, as anyone who drives or cycles along Hills Road knows only too well.
The Council is carrying out the work in August, when Hills Road is quieter, or at least less busy than at other times of the year. Works are scheduled to commence approximately 12th August and finish around the 30th.
During this time there will be a one-way system allowing traffic to travel down Hills Road into the City from the Addenbrooke’s direction. All southbound traffic will be diverted along Cherry Hinton Road, Mowbray Road and Fendon Road.
The bus stops on Hills Road will not be served during 6a.m. and 3.30p.m. and and passengers will need to use the Addenbrooke’s bus interchange or stops on Queen Edith’s Way and Cherry Hinton Road. Please see Stagecoach’s website for full details.
Some cycle lanes are closed, though we assume the on-pavement ones will be as normal.
Please check for updates, as we know from experience that County Council plans can change!Leave a comment
