Help to shape the future of transport in Greater Cambridge

Published: Thursday, October 12, 2017


People living, working and travelling in and around Cambridge are being urged to take part in an extensive travel survey.

The Greater Cambridge Travel Survey, which runs until the end of the month, will capture travel patterns and preferred modes of transport – with a key focus on what infrastructure improvements people need to enable them to travel more sustainability.

With congestion and the amount of time motorists sit waiting in traffic in Cambridge expected to double by 2030, the information obtained from the Greater Cambridge Travel Survey will be used to help shape future investment in the transport network.

Cllr Francis Burkitt, Chair of the Greater Cambridge Partnership, said: “The feedback will help us better understand how people currently travel around and how they might like to travel in the future if we can present them with new and attractive options, with the ultimate aim of reducing congestion on our roads and improving the environment.

“Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire are growing, tens of thousands of new jobs are being generated – this is a great thing, but we need to ensure people can still continue to travel around easily. This will help the Partnership prioritise its future investment in areas that people have told us will make a difference.”

The Greater Cambridge Travel Survey, launched on Monday, is being carried out by Travel for Cambridge (TfC) on behalf of the Greater Cambridge Partnership.

The Partnership is continuing its Big Conversation with residents, commuters and businesses throughout the autumn to seek views on its investment over the next 10 years in transport, housing, skills and smart technology.

Rizwan Hemraj, Business Manager for TfC, said: “The travel survey is a great opportunity for everyone to have their say on how we all travel around Cambridge.

“It will help build upon the annual travel to work survey that we carry out across more than 100 employers across the area, to understand how people travel and how they would like to travel if they had different choices.”

People can take part in the Greater Cambridge Travel Survey online at TfC's website or by completing a questionnaire at one of the Greater Cambridge Partnership’s Big Conversation events listed below.

  • Greater Cambridge Partnership’s Director of Transport Chris Tunstall will answer your transport questions in a Facebook Live broadcast on 26 October at 12.30pm. You can email a question ahead of the live stream via contactus@greatercambridge.org.uk – please put ‘Facebook Live’ in the email subject header.
