The environmental pressure group, Extinction Rebellion, have announced their intention to “close down” Cambridge for the week commencing Sunday 15th February 2020.

They have announced a blockade on the junction of Trumpington Street and Lensfield Road with other “actions” to take place in and around the city

If this action proceeds, it is very likely that central Cambridge will be inaccessible for the week, and the knock on effect on major roads in and out of the city will lead to heavy congestion on other routes also

As such – we have contingency plans to temporarily relocate our processing centre out of Cambridge itself during the week (if needed) in an effort to maintain service levels to our customers.

We may find it impossible to gain access into the city itself – but we will do our very best
