Cambridgeshire Drought Scheme

Project Overview

Service: Earthworks
Project: Cambridgeshire Drought Scheme
Location: C2 Hill Row, Cambridge
Client: Skanska Construction UK Ltd T/A Skanska Infrastructure Services
Value: £82,249

The Cambridgeshire Drought Scheme aims to repair more than 40 miles of drought damaged roads in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough with the Mick George Group 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 Drought Scheme

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 Mick George Group are acknowledged as one of the leading Bulk Earthworks contractors in the Anglia and East Midlands region, trusted to take care of some of the most complex and challenging enabling projects nationally.

When it comes to Earthworks requirements, there really are no limits on our expertise and experience.
