People have additional time to respond to a public consultation outlining proposals to provide improved public transport, cycling and walking journeys along Milton Road.
The Greater Cambridge Partnership has extended the Milton Road consultation by a week and people now have until Monday 5 November to share their thoughts on the plans.
The £16m project, funded by the GCP, includes the proposed introduction of inbound and outbound bus lanes and ‘floating bus stops’, with segregated walking and cycling lanes.
The scheme – which aims to help reduce congestion and encourage more people onto sustainable modes of transport – also includes ‘Copenhagen-style’ crossings to improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and residents in the area.
The findings will be put before members of the Joint Assembly and Executive Board later this year for a decision. Construction is expected to begin in 2020, subject to approval.
There are two upcoming community events at which people can talk to officers and have their say. The events will be held on the following dates and venues:
People can view the proposals, including a digital version of the brochure posted to 18,500 properties, and share their opinions via the GCP’s online engagement tool, Consult Cambs.
