The Cambridge Eastern Access project is one of four corridor projects that aim to provide better public transport and active travel routes, such as walking and cycling, offering better connections and alternatives to car use for growing communities to the north, south east, east and west of the city.
It is part of the Greater Cambridge Partnership’s transport programme, investing Government funding in a comprehensive package of initiatives to tackle the congestion Greater Cambridge faces now and which will enable it to grow in the future.
The project is looking at access to and from the city from the east to enable people to get around more easily by public transport, cycle or on foot.
Following a period of public consultation in the Autumn of 2020 GCP has developed a number of options to implement short term improvements to public transport, cycling and walking on Newmarket Road which can be delivered prior to 2025, as well as potential relocation of the Newmarket Road Park and Ride.
As part of this work, we want to hear your views on potential public transport, walking and cycling improvements to enable people to get around more easily.
You can share your thoughts by filling in the survey online.
The results of this consultation will be taken back to the GCP Executive Board - alongside further technical work – in 2022 to decide on next steps on the preferred options.
We recognise that not everyone will want to respond to the consultation online and people can contact us to request a paper copy of the survey:
