Chisholm Trails Works

Installation of jetty for The Chisholm Trail

Installation of the Chisholm Trail jetty is now scheduled to take place from 13th to 26th August 2020.

The jetty, which connects the footpath between Stourbridge Common and Ditton Meadows, will be installed from 13th August. It is expected to reopen this autumn to enable people to walk and cycle across the common. It marks an important step in the Chisholm Trail – a joint project between the Greater Cambridge Partnership and Cambridgeshire County Council to deliver a new first-class walking and cycling route across the city.

Tarmac will be undertaking the construction on behalf of Cambridgeshire County Council and the Greater Cambridge Partnership.

Please note that during this period there will also be some disruption on Fen Road. Most of the work is planned to be carried out during the day, however there will be two occurrences of night working. Further detail is shown in the table below:
