Construction begins this week to improve road safety for cyclists and pedestrians travelling between Cambridge and Fen Ditton.
Work to widen the shared-use path and cycleway on both sides of Horningsea Road between High Ditch Road and north of Fen Ditton Primary School begins today.
Ditton Lane will also be widened as part of the Greater Cambridge Partnership’s Cross City Cycling scheme, which will also see a new toucan crossing installed to the north of the school and an upgraded pedestrian crossing near the High Street.
Letters have been sent to residents in the Fen Ditton, Horningsea and the northern Abbey areas to inform them of the work, which is expected to be completed in Spring 2019.
Temporary traffic signals will be required during working hours, which will be between 9.30am and 3.30pm during the initial phase of works.
The Ditton Lane project is one of five Cross City Cycling schemes being delivered by the Greater Cambridge Partnership which aims to provide safer and improved cycling and walking routes between people’s homes and their schools and places of work.
The other Cross City Cycling projects are: Fulbourn/Cherry Hinton, Arbury Road, Hills Road & Addenbrooke’s and Cambridge North & Cambridge Science Park.
