Highways have begun culvert lining works to 5 culverts along the A1301, Sawston Bypass for around 6 weeks (subject to weather and unforeseen conditions). Traffic lights will be in place during working hours.
“Cured in place pipe (CIPP) technology” method involves lining the pipe with a high strength resin composite. The advantages of this system are that the culverts do not corrode and will not need replacing in future. The process is more environmentally friendly and there is a large cost saving compared to traditional strengthening methods or full replacement.
