Boule­vard works now next year

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

Works to put in a new right turn on Bourges Boule­vard, which were ex­pected to start this sum­mer, have been pushed back un­til next year.

Peter­bor­ough City Council is go­ing to in­tro­duce the turn­ing near the sta­tion long-stay car park for mo­torists trav­el­ling south­bound. The car park will then be turned into a multi-storey. Si­mon Machen, council cor­po­rate director for growth and re­gen­er­a­tion, said the works will take place next year “to en­sure that de­lays are kept to a min­i­mum given the other works cur­rently tak­ing place on the wider city road net­work.

“In ad­di­tion, the council op­er­ates a city cen­tre road­works shut down ahead of Christ­mas which be­gins around the mid­dle of Novem­ber.”

The scheme will be funded by the Greater Cam­bridge Greater Peter­bor­ough Lo­cal Enterprise Part­ner­ship.
