People will be able to have their say on transport projects that will transform journeys across Greater Cambridge this autumn.
Next month the Greater Cambridge Partnership will ask for views on schemes for a new public transport route and significantly improved walking and cycling routes that will help reduce congestion and improve air quality.
Views will be sought on phase two of the Cambridge South East Transport project which would create a new dedicated off-road public transport route to provide more reliable journeys into the city and to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
People can also tell give their views on where a new travel hub near the A11/A1307/A505 should be located to best serve residents and commuters during the eight week consultation.
Key road safety improvements and upgrades to traffic signals as part of a £14m package of quick wins during phase one of the Cambridge South East Transport project are currently being delivered.
A six week public consultation on plans to improve capacity for parking at Foxton Station to encourage more people to catch the train into the city begins in early September. The proposals include better walking and cycling links, access to bus stops and more car parking spaces.
Proposals for a new travel hub to the west of M11 J11 were approved in June. The new travel hub and the proposed improvements at Foxton Station would work together to intercept thousands of people who currently drive along the motorway and the A10 to enable more people to complete the ‘last mile’ of their journeys on foot, bicycle or public transport.
Public exhibitions looking at the designs for the travel hub will be held on 18 September at Trumpington Primary School and on 19 September at Harston Village Hall between 5.30-7.30pm.
Finally, the GCP will be launching public consultations on the Bottisham, Swaffham and Horningsea Greenways for six weeks – part of a network of 12 first-class walking, cycling and equestrian routes to connect villages and towns to Cambridge to encourage more people travel sustainably.
