SIX road improvement schemes for East Cambridgeshire totalling £140,000 could be implemented over the next year.

Highway engineers have been told to draw up detailed plans for the projects designed to improve safety in the district.

If given the go-ahead, the schemes will be funded by Cambridgeshire County Council, East Cambridgeshire District Council and parish councils.

Final approval will be given after all the councils have set their budgets for the coming year.

The projects include:

Speed reduction measures on Ely's Back Hill and Station Road, called for by residents who signed a petition.

Better management of the speed of traffic in Hall Street, Soham with the provision of engineering measures to encourage better compliance with the speed limit.

Improvements to the junction of Station Road/Hop Row/High Street and The Green, Haddenham.

Improve conditions for pedestrians, especially children, using the crossroads junction next to the school and church in Fordham to address concerns about speeding traffic.

A footway on the south-western side of Newmarket Road, Burwell.

A flat-topped ramp near the entrance to the primary school in Malting Lane, Isleham which could be used as a crossing point for children and parents.
