Work set to start on major cycleway

Published: Thursday, February 16, 2017


Construction beings today on a major cycleway scheme on Hills Road

Today (Monday 27 February), work begins on the cycleway which will provide better and safer journeys for thousands of cyclists and pedestrians who use the key route to access local homes, schools and workplaces, including Addenbrooke's and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

The new facilities, funded by the Greater Cambridge City Deal, will include safer crossings at the junction of Hills Road, Long Road and Queen Edith’s Way, along with dedicated raised cycle lanes and two new bus stops.

Contractors will begin their work on Monday to complete improvements on the Hills Road to Long Road/Queen Edith Way junction, which is expected to take around 11 weeks.

From Monday, those travelling in the area are advised that works will begin on the city bound side first and will involve minimum traffic management measures in the form of lane narrowing.  The existing bus stop will be relocated to just outside the works.

As the project progresses, other appropriate traffic management arrangements will be required from May and plans are underway to ensure that the work involves the least disruption possible whilst completing the scheme quickly. Full details of traffic arrangements will be released as soon as possible.

As more information emerges, full details on the traffic management arrangements, timescales and diversions will be provided to local residents and published via the City Deal website and social media channels.  Information on the Hills Road to Addenbrooke’s Scheme can be found at http://www.gccitydeal.co.uk/cross-city-cycling.
