Posted: 11/06/2019


NOTICE is given that Cambridgeshire County Council has made an Order pursuant to the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, as amended by the Road Traffic (Temporary Restrictions) Act 1991, the effect of which is to stop any vehicle from proceeding along High Street, Fenstanton as lies between numbers 2 and 14.

Access will be maintained to properties affected by this order.

The alternative route for vehicles is: westbound via Huntingdon Road - A1096 - B1040 - Rogues Lane, Hilton - Rogues Lane, Elsworth - Smith Street - Boxworth Road - Elsworth Road, Boxworth - High Street - Boxworth End - Boxworth End, Swavesey - A14 - Conington Road and eastbound via Cambridge Road - A14 – Boxworth End, Swavesey – Boxworth End, Boxworth – High Street – Elsworth Road – Boxworth Road, Elsworth – Smith Street – Rogues Lane – Rogues Lane, Hilton – B1040 – A1096 – Low Road, Fenstanton – Huntingdon Road.

[ Editor's Note: This 18.2 mile diversion is a nonsense - the A14 is the easiest alternative unless blocked or closed]
