Yellow lines update

Last year, there were several successful bids to the  County Council Local Highways Improvement Initiative for this area.  Council highways officers have been working up plans, and I now have provisional drawings for:

  1. Netherhall Way Netherhall & Chalk parking restrictions
  2. Chalk Grove Netherhall & Chalk parking restrictions
  3. Beaumont Road Beaumont Road parking restrictions
  4. Lichfield Road * Lichfield Rd parking restrictions and Lichfield Road parking restrictions V2
  5. Topcliffe Way Topcliffe Way DYL 001-1

You can view these drawings by clicking on the links. If you, or anyone you know, would like to look at a printout, please let me know.

The next stage will be for a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) describing the changes to be advertised in the local paper and in the street. If there are no objections, the scheme will go ahead; if there are objections, then they will be determined by the Cambridge Joint Area Committee.

We await drawings for Cavendish Avenue and Godwin Way

  • Credit due to Cllrs Noel Kavanagh and Rosie Moore for the Lichfield Road bids; I am taking over where they left off.

Cambridge Joint Area Committee

Since September, I have been chairing the Cambridge Joint Area Committee (CJAC for short) is a joint County/City Council committee that handles a number of traffic-related matters in the City of Cambridge, including:

  1. Determining priorities for the Local Highway Improvement Initiative
  2. Traffic management, parking regulation, cycle and pedestrian schemes
  3. Advising on on-street and off-street parking charges.
  4. Advise on priorities for Section 106 funding for traffic management and other transport schemes
  5. Determining objections to Traffic Regulation Orders
  6. Resolving detailed design issues for traffic management proposals

The next meeting is on Tuesday 22nd 20th January, and councillors will be taking decisions on new parking restrictions on the Accordia Estate, cycle parking in Thoday Street, and pavement café licences in the city centre. To view the agenda, click here.
