Layby Jan 2024a

Layby Repairs

We reported several defects at the layby on Cambridge Road Barton on the Cambridgeshire County Council website. The reports included blocked drains, pot holes, mud and debris on the footpath, and the deep ruts caused by HGVs on the opposite grass verge. Highways have filled in the large pot hole, cleaned the footpath and cleared the drains. They have also filled in the ruts with top soil and replaced the black and white verge edge markers. There are still large pot holes to fill, but CCC Highways are prioritizing roads rather than laybys. As a the Parish Council has been told that any permanent solution to improve the state of the layby and prevent opposite verge damage would have to be funded privately or through a Local Highway Initiative (LHI) grant. Please feel free to comment.


As a reminder, minor faults such as pot holes, will only be fixed if reported on the CCC Highways website.
