Fort St George Bridge Works

On January 5th, Cambridgeshire County Council will begin work on the Fort St George bridge to replace the poisonous lead-based paint. It will be similar to the work on the Green Dragon Bridge, and will involve covering half of the bridge in scaffolding at a time, restricting navigation to the open half. A traffic light system will be in operation as before, with the lights being placed on the bridge itself. Warning signs will be positioned some way upstream and downstream of the bridge works. Work will continue until April 17th. The bridge will also be closed to pedestrians and cyclists during this time.

Do you have a question for the Council/Cam Con? (of course you do!) At the Camboaters AGM on the 19th Nov at the Fort St George we will have a Q&A session with Councillor Carina O'Reilly, Executive Councillor for Streets and Open Spaces, who is in charge of mooring related decisions and Jed Ramsey, River Manager, Cam Conservancy.
