Expansion work starts at Babraham Road Park & Ride

Cambridgeshire County Council is starting work on extending the popular Babraham Road Park & Ride site.

The Babraham Road site is the most used of the five Cambridge Park and Ride sites and the expansion is needed to ensure there are enough parking spaces for people wishing to use the highly successful service into and across Cambridge.

Most weekdays the site is full for around two hours and 90% of spaces are taken for four hours.  On weekends, 90% of all spaces are full for three hours a day.

The expansion project will increase the existing capacity of 1000 car parking spaces by about 500 and add a further 80 sheltered cycle parking spaces. The extension is expected to cost £2 million, with funding provided from developers in the area served by the Park and Ride.

The construction will not affect the normal operation of the Park and Ride service. However a very small number of existing parking spaces around the work site will not be available. The extended site is expected to be available in time for Christmas.
