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 from the Department for Transport, Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough County Council, respectively.

The road reconstruction project in Stuntney which was originally planned to incur a significant road closure for a 5-week period, was successfully delivered by Mick George Ltd in just one single weekend. In fact, the project was completed with five-hours to spare from the revised programme. This included all pre-site works of crushing and screening material, before preparing the road ready for tarmacking.
The major road reconstruction included repairs down to foundation layers, and consisted of maintenance to vegetation, drainage, signage and road markings along the specified routes.
‘‘We express our gratitude at a job well done from all involved. This wouldn’t have been possible without the collaborative effort, pre-works and during works, to ensure programme efficiencies could be realised. We were particularly impressed with the attitudes of the site teams who worked long and disruptive hours, for which we’re extremely grateful.’’
