A49 Kimbolton (Eaton Hill) Retaining Wall
Part of our ongoing programme of work to maintain England's strategic road network
What is happening?
We will be installing a new retaining wall on the riverbank alongside the A49 between OK roundabout and Eaton Hill near Kimbolton, and will also install a new barrier which will prevent vehicles leaving the carriageway.
When and where is this happening?
We plan to start works in January 2013 and have scheduled them to finish in April 2013.
Why is this happening and what will it cost?
We are installing a new retaining wall as the current one has reached the end of its natural life. Replacement of the barrier will improve safety at the location.
How will the scheme be carried out?
We will carry out the works during both the day and overnight. We will use lane closures to protect our workforce and to complete the works. We will need to close the carriageway overnight at various points during the works. These closures will be clearly sign posted in advance and you should leave extra time to complete your journey.
How will this impact on my journey?
We will use temporary traffic lights to manage traffic through the lane closures. We expect the delays to be minimal but you should leave extra time to complete your journey.
What are the benefits?
By carrying out these works we will improve safety for road users at the location.
