The Greater Cambridge Partnership (City Deal) is presenting three travel strategies designed to get people in and out of Cambridge more quickly, reliably and in a more sustainable fashion. The route starts at the Biomedical Campus (the Addenbrooke’s site) and runs along the A1307 to Haverhill.
The strategies encompass everything from major new infrastructure such as a new Park & Ride site and rapid mass transport to lower cost improvements to the existing highways.
At our end of the route, the highlights are:
- a right-turn lane from Babraham Road into Granham’s Road
- extra covered cycle storage and electric car charging points at the Babraham Road Park & Ride site
- a multi-user path between the Biomedical Campus and the Babraham Research Campus, for cyclists, pedestrians and horses
- a right-turn lane for the Gog Farm Shop entrance, and a staggered junction to replace the crossroads
- an underpass at Wandlebury to make it easier for walkers to get across the road
More information can be found at www.greatercambridge.org.uk/CambridgeSouthEast. The GPC promises an advertising campaign and leaflets, though they have not materialised yet, despite the fact the first consultation events are this week.
The GPC is running a consultation running until 3rd April. There are various ways to take part, from letter and telephone to social media and the web.
There will be public exhibitions at various locations, including Queen Edith’s:
4-7 p.m., Thursday 15th March, St John’s Church, Hills Road
8-9.30 a.m., Wednesday 21st March, Babrahm Road Park and Ride site
NB The meeting scheduled for tomorrow morning at the Babraham Road Park and Ride site has just been cancelled due to severe weather.
