‘Future transport’ study successful bid announced

Published: Friday, September 15, 2017


London-based transport consultancy Steer Davies Gleave will lead initial research on potential future transport solutions for Cambridge City and the surrounding travel to work areas, it has been confirmed.

The study will explore and compare long-term solutions for rapid mass transit including looking at both above and below ground options.

The study, which will consider light rail, Advanced Very Rapid Transport and Bus Rapid Transit among others, has been jointly commissioned by the Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA).

Millions in additional Government funding for transport infrastructure in the county has been secured through the local devolution deal for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and, earlier, through a City Deal for Greater Cambridge. The devolution deal will see an additional £770m invested in transport, housing, skills and public sector reform over the next 30 years   with GCP funding of up to £500million to 2031 dedicated to improving transport that supports the Cambridge economy.

The Strategic Options Appraisal, as it is known, is due to report its initial findings by the end of the calendar year with a view to informing the long-term transport strategy for Greater Cambridge.
