Work begins to improve safety for Fen Road residents

Clare BlairWork has begun to improve the safety of residents living in Cambridge's Fen Road after residents, councillors and council officers got together just weeks ago to discuss long-running issues.

Old wooden bollards at the Water Street and Water Lane junction have been replaced with metal ones in a bid to stop vandals sawing through them to get vehicle access to Fen Road.

The work was carried out by Cambridge City Council after resident Clare Blair (pictured) requested the new bollards at the beginning of the year.

She said: "I am really pleased that only weeks after our well attended meeting about Fen Road we are already seeing action to improve safety for residents."

Clare teamed up with Cambridgeshire County Councillor, Ian Manning, who represents East Chesterton to give residents a chance to have their say on how anti-social behaviour, speeding drivers and other problems, which had plagued residents for years, could be solved.

"There is much more to be done," added Clare, "but I am delighted to see that we have already been able to make a good start."
