3 May 2019

I am writing to introduce Graham Construction Ltd as the principal contractor working on behalf of Highways England. We will soon be carrying out several separate schemes along the A14 between junctions 40 to 47 which includes vegetation clearance, renewing road signs, carriageway repairs, the installation of vehicle restraint systems and the replacement of road markings and studs.

Works will begin at the end of May 2019 and are due to last until early September 2019. We will continue to keep you informed of each individual scheme as work progresses and advise you of any changes to our programme or traffic management if required. A further letter with greater detail setting out our upcoming works and diversion routes in your vicinity will be delivered in advance of the scheme starting.

Whilst we appreciate that disruption on any scale is not ideal, we will be working between the hours of 8pm and 6am to help minimise this.

If you have any questions in relation to this letter, please feel free to contact us via the Highways England Customer Contact Centre on 0300 123 5000, or by emailing HEWorks@graham.co.uk


Womens Tour Event 2019

2 May 2019

The OVO Women's Cycle Tour will be coming through Rattlesden on Monday 10 June - and, as you'll see from the attachments, around 2.00pm until 3.00pm requiring unfettered access from Felsham Road, through Lower Road and Birds Green then out towards Buxhall. It would seem that a 'no parking' zone is to be applied from the entrance to Birds Green onwards (i.e. until the race leaves the village).
