Cambridge Eastern Access Consultation

Cambridge Eastern Access Consultation

Monday, 19 October 2020 - Thursday, 17 December 2020
9am 19/10/2020 to 9am 17/12/2020

Proposals for the Cambridge Eastern Access project to provide reliable and safe walking, cycling and public journeys along the busy A1303/A1134 routes have been set out in a new consultation.

The Cambridge Eastern Access project is tackling the problem of how best to improve public transport and active travel to reduce congestion and improve air quality along the busy Newmarket Road A1303/A1134 corridor.

The options could be delivered in two phases – the first phase looking at adding bus priority measures and other on-road improvements to Newmarket Road, as well as the possibility of a relocated and expanded Newmarket Road Park and Ride site.

The second phase would deliver a new dedicated public transport route. This phase is linked to and dependent on decisions in the emerging local plan and the potential development of the Marshalls site.

A further option could see more trains on the Cambridge to Newmarket railway line and a new railway station in east Cambridge, but this would also be subject to the Local Plan, infrastructure improvement and investment from other organisations, including Network Rail.

The eight-week public consultation closes to comments on 18 December. For more information and to have your say visit
