The Brief

The Cambridgeshire Drought Scheme aims to repair more than 40 miles of drought damaged roads in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough with Mick George Ltd responsible for improvements on six routes in and around Cambridge.

In its entirety, the scheme includes 21 sections of road affected by severe weather conditions and owes largely to an investment of £6.25million made up of £3.5m secured funding from the Department for Transport and the surplus £2.75m provided by Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough County Council respectively.

The major road reconstruction will include repairs down to foundation layers, and will also consist of maintenance to vegetation, drainage, signage and road markings along the specified routes.

Cambridgeshire County Council, Peterborough City Council and its contractor Skanska are working together to minimise disruption to local residents and those who use the road networks.

It is anticipated that the long-term approach to the maintenance of the roads included within the scheduled upgrades will prevent any need for repeated costly repairs and any extra disruption for drivers, in the future.



The Earthworks provision is one of the primary services that will dictate the success of a development longer term. It is essential that the works are completed to a high quality standard, but importantly on schedule and budget, to prevent later issues. Mick George Ltd always meet these credentials, and provide us with so much more.
