Works to im­prove A605 safety at scene of five fa­tal­i­ties

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

Part of the A605 is to close over the week­end to al­low for works to im­prove the safety of the road where there have been sev­eral fa­tal­i­ties this year.

The A605 will be closed be­tween the Peter­bor­ough Ser­vices and El­ton Junc­tion (B671) from Fri­day at 8pm to Mon­day at 5am.

A Cam­bridgeshire County Coun­cil spokes­woman said: “We are work­ing closely with Northamp­ton­shire High­ways who have a road clo­sure in place on these dates to un­der­take resur­fac­ing and veg­e­ta­tion cut back along the A605 from Warm­ing­ton to the El­ton junc­tion.

“Ex­tend­ing this clo­sure up to the ser­vices round­about will mean a sin­gle tem­po­rary road clo­sure.

“A lo­cal di­ver­sion route will be in place via Ov­erend Oun­dle Road. The di­ver­sion route for through traf­fic will be in place via A1(M) – A14.”

Five peo­ple died on the stretch of road over a three month pe­riod this year, with cam­paign­ers call­ing for speed re­stric­tions to be put in place.
