Timberland getting roads improvement

The diversion route for the works

Resurfacing works happening along entire Fen Road.

Karen Cassar, assistant director of Highways said: “I am delighted that we are able to roll out these works for this section of the fen roads network. 

“These resurfacing works will make a very real difference for all those who use this road. We're spending £180,000 on this stretch which will run from the junction of Church Lane to Timberland Drove. 

“Resurfacing works like these do mean that a diversion route will need to be in place, but our expert crews will do everything possible to complete the programme as quickly as possible and reduce any disruption to the least amount of time necessary.” 

Locations of works

The works will be carried out at Fen Road, Timberland from the junction of Church Lane to Timberland Drove. 

Dates and times

The works will begin on Tuesday, May 21 and have a planned end date of Wednesday, May 29, subject to suitable weather. On-site working hours are from 07.00 to 17.00. 

Traffic management

A road closure is required for the duration of the works.  

Diversion route

The signed diversion route will be; Martin Road/Timberland Road, B1191 (Martin Straight), Martin Dales Drove, Witham Bank and vice versa. 

Karen Cassar added: “All businesses will remain open as usual during the programme or work. Access to Peacock Waters shall be from the west via Timberland Drove. The route will be clearly signposted throughout. 

“Naturally, there will be some traffic disruption whilst the improvement is put in place. This is unavoidable given the nature and the complexity of the works themselves and I’d like to thank anyone effected by the works for their patience and understanding while we complete the programme.”
