Gridlocked Gamlingay Traffic at certain times of the day is always a problem in the vilage, but it has become worse during the Church Street works, with the necessary road closures and diversions. How can we all help? Please use your driveways/garages to park or if you have space - offer it to neighbours to park in order to keep as many cars as possible off the road to assist with the through passage of traffic. Obey any parking restrictions that are in place. If there are vehicles parked all the way down both sides of the street, there is nowhere for through traffic to pull in.

Church Street works - access The contractor has asked us to "please reiterate that residents and visitors are able to gain access- they will have to speak to the TM crew to be let around the closure safely. However it is closed to through traffic which will need to follow the signed diversion." This is a road closure, so vehicle access may be delayed slightly to maintain safety. I have just spoken to the site manager who assured me that access is being maintained, although there may have been a short period (10-15mins) yesterday where the delivery of a forklift was being made that may have caused a slight delay to users" ...

Church Street works Thank you for your patience residents and businesses who are inevitably being inconvenienced at times by the works. The Parish Council will of course, pass any major problems on to the contractors, but hope to be able to let them get on and complete the job as soon as possible. The good news is that the pavements shouldn’t need resurfacing for another 15 years once they’ve been done! ... See more
