Road closures: Marshall Road and Cherry Hinton Road

conesBoth Marshall Road and Cherry Hinton Road will be closed in the near future to enable roadworks to take place.

The County Council will be doing remedial work to the surface dressing in Cherry Hinton Road. This road was only treated last year, but is already in a poor state, so the Council is re-treating it with a better material. The prohibition order provides for the road to be closed at some point between September and March; however, it will not physically be closed for all of that time, only when the work takes place. It is hoped to do it in September, otherwise in the New Year. I will update this post when we have more information.

Marshall Road is being closed because the sewer is structurally unsound and Anglian Water is going to insert a liner pipe. The work will be done between 9 and 5 on 17th September. They will be able to use existing manholes but the road needs to be closed because the sewers are in the middle of the road.

Anglian Water say the work is to the surface water sewer not the foul water one, and assure me that there should be no chemical smells. You should be able to use your water as normal.
