Give-Way Traffic Calming on Cambridge Road

As a result of The 2018 Village Plan survey, one of residents’ top fears for safety in Hardwick was from traffic speeding through the village.  89% of those who responded (371) “think this should be tackled in some way”. The Parish Council used the village Speed Displays to verify the excess speed being measured and consulted County Highways as to the best solution to reduce it.

The result is the /Priority /Give Way scheme shown below. Option 2 was selected as this provides better access from Egremont Road at peak times.

This type of solution is used by many neighbouring villages and we expect it will improve respect for the village safety and disregard of the legal limits.  The Parish Council will monitor the effectiveness of the scheme and review the results in 12 months’ time.

Installation should follow the current Footpath Upgrade which still around 2 to 3 weeks from completion.

A428 between Wyboston Interchange and Hardwick – Essential Maintenance and Survey work

Dear residents,

Please find below information pertinent for Hardwick, from Highways England:

Important roadworks information: A428 between Wyboston Interchange and Hardwick, in both directions

Highways England be carrying out essential maintenance work at the above location. During this work, we’ll also carry out drainage surveys.

We plan to complete this work over 3 nights from Wednesday 7 April to Friday 9 April, working between the hours of 8pm to 6am, subject to weather conditions.

To ensure the safety of our workforce we will need to close sections of the A428, in both directions between Wyboston Interchange and Hardwick. We have liaised with the local authority to agree the most suitable diversion route for this work.

Diversion route

Eastbound: A1 traffic wanting to travel eastbound on the A428 will be diverted at Wyboston Interchange northbound towards Brampton Hut Interchange, onto the A14 towards junction 32, to rejoin the A428/A14.

Westbound: M11 traffic wanting to travel westbound on the A428 will leave the M11 at junction 13, onto the A1303/Madingley Road, onto St Neot’s Road, travel eastbound along the A428 to join the A14 at junction 31. At Brampton Hut Interchange traffic will join the A1 southbound towards Wyboston to continue their journey.

A14 traffic wanting to travel westbound on the A428 will continue on the A14 towards Brampton Hut Interchange and join the A1 southbound towards Wyboston.

Attached is a map of the diversion route.

Roadworks: Main street and Cambridge Road footpath upgrade

The advance warning signs are up for the Main Street/Cambridge Road Footpath Upgrade.

Starting 8th March, the contractors expect it will take 10 weeks.

The work starts at Egremont Road Junction. You will see a Section 5 “To be
