   Wings for Life Run - village roads closed    22 March, 2017

The Wings for Life run passes through the village on Sunday 7th May. All main roads will regrettably be closed at times on that day.  In particular, Cambridge Road, the Crossroads, and Water Lane will be closed to all traffic from 12:15 until 14:20, Station Road and Longstanton Road outside the village from 12:15 until 18:00, and the Westwick to Cottenham road will be closed to all traffic from 13:40 to 18:00. The race ends back in Westwick so there is likely to be congestion there beyond the re-opening time.

The Citi 6 bus service will be suspended for part of the day, though the Guided Bus may be able to continue in service largely unaffected - see these details from Stagecoach.

Businesses on Dry Drayton Road will only be available to motor traffic from the A14 direction during the main closure.

A letter was supposedly delivered to all residents in December, though we have yet to meet anyone who received one of these. The letter can be seen here.  A further letter to residents with updated information and reduced closure hours is anticipated and a draft is available here
