Using Addenbrooke’s access road? You could be fined.

The Addenbrooke’s access road is experiencing increased volumes of traffic unconnected with the Biomedical Campus – no doubt in desperation at the never-ending delays on Hills Road. The NHS Trust management say that 400-650 vehicles a day are using the road as a rat-run, rather than to access the hospital – although they do not say how the journey purpose is established.

They have announced that from 22nd May, drivers using the road as a short-cut will be hit with a £50 fine, using data from Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras.  The enforcement will apply to Addenbrooke’s Road at its intersection with Dame Mary Archer Way and Frances Crick Avenue at the roundabout, Robinson Way, Adrian Way and the main drive from Hills Road.
