These changes came into effect on the 26th May 2017 and will last until project completion at the end of 2018.
They have been introduced for safety reasons - additional HGV vehicles accessing Iberdrola construction site
South of the Premier Inn Hotel there will be a large site which will be used to store materials for route construction. This picture shows status at the end of July, and this site, including the access road will remain until the project completes.
There will also be impacts on those who use the local footpaths in Akenham, see picture below where the route crosses the existing bridlepath.
