Around £350,000 is to be spent on improving a busy road in Littleport.

Cambridgeshire County Council has announced it will be carrying out repair and resurfacing work on the A1101, Mildenhall Road.

Contractors will move in on Monday, December 2, to repair the worse stretches of the popular commuter route.

The council says the work is expected to take around two weeks, but that it will depend on weather conditions.

A spokesman added: “Some delays are inevitable, but to keep disruption to a minimum, working hours will be restricted to 9.30am-3.30 pm with temporary traffic lights in operation.”

The council is also currently repairing and improving a bridge on the Twenty Pence Road between Cottenham and Wilburton.

The work, which is costing around £85,000, is seeing the concrete bridge being repaired, new kerbing being installed and safety fencing on the approach roads being replaced and improved.

A reduced 40 mph speed limit and traffic lights are being used to control vehicles using the bridge.
