The A 10 Shepreth to Foxton Cycleway is a highway improvement scheme to widen and upgrade the existing off-road footpath that runs alongside the A 10 carriageway.

Manit Contractors working in collaboration with Skanska undertook an alternative construction methodology and  elected to re-use the existing excavated footway construction as sub-base for the widened sections of the Cycleway. This methodology resulted in a significant reduction of carbon emissions,waste generation and resource use.

The local community benefited from this sustainable approach by reducing the number of HGV deliveries for material and also for the removal of waste from the site. In addition the finished Cycleway now provides a safe and quick link between villages for both pedestrians and cyclists.
