Wilbrahams’ Gigabit Project
The Wilbrahams successfully applied and obtained approval from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) to install full-fibre infrastructure that will deliver hyperfast broadband to Little and Great Wilbraham. This scheme is called the Gigabit Voucher Scheme (GVS). The project was approved by DCMS in March 2021.
Cambridge Fibre (CF), a Cambridge-based company, is building the infrastructure, using existing BT infrastructure such as ducts and poles. This method minimising the use to dig up the road and makes the process quick and efficient. The current estimate from CF is that connections to the Wilbrahams will begin in Autumn 2021. All residents who subscribed to the GVS will be connected latest by March 2022.
Great Wilbraham Transport Working Group
The aim of the Transport Working Group (TWG) is to minimise the impact of Heavy Goods Vehicles on our lives in Great Wilbraham, and to improve the safety of village residents on our roads.
The TWG is made up of volunteers from the village who carry out investigations and research into local traffic and the problems it causes. We ask for the views of the people who live here, we monitor the traffic, and we discuss the problems and possible solutions with Highways Officers, with Councillors at County, District and Parish level, and with the businesses that bring these huge lorries through our village. Of particular importance is advising the Parish Council and to recommend and propose actions to ameliorate the problems and the dangers caused by this increasing flow of vehicles though our village.
If you would like to help TWG or if you have any questions or suggestions, please contact TWG at email@example.com.
