Newmarket Road overnight closure next weekend

Newmarket Road will be temporarily closed overnight between the Leper Chapel and Ditton Walk from 8pm- 6am on Saturday 7 August. A contingency date of Sunday 8 August 8pm-6am has also been allocated to allow for any unexpected delays.

Greater Cambridge Partnership says this is to allow work to continue on the installation of the underpass which will mean those using the Chisholm Trail will not have to use a pelican crossing to cross Newmarket Road – giving pedestrians, cyclists and other non-motorised users a safe crossing and helping motor traffic flow more freely along Newmarket Road.

The map below shows the signed diversion route for cyclists and pedestrians across Coldham's Common or via Ditton Meadows using the jetty path. Motor traffic will be diverted along Coldham's Lane.
