Motorists warned about major works scheme starting
Motorists are being warned a new roadworks scheme will start today (Thursday) in Peterborough.
Extra capacity is being added to junction 17 of the A1(M) and junction 1 of the A1139 Fletton Parkway to the south west of the city that will enable the expansion of the Gateway Peterborough business park.
At the same time, Cambridgeshire County Council will carry out full depth resurfacing on the A1(M) junction 17 roundabout.
The works will see overnight closures and temporary speed limits installed. The work has been carefully planned in a partnership between Highways England, Cambridgeshire County Council, Peterborough City Council, Gateway Peterborough’s owners Roxhill Developments and their contractors Winvic. By closely coordinating the projects and by carrying out the vast majority of the work overnight it is hoped long delays will be avoided.
The works are expected to last about three months, and be completed in November. For more information about the works, visit www.highways.gov.uk/traffic
