Public engagement launched on Greenways routes
People can help to shape designs for the Greater Cambridge Greenways – a new network of active travel routes linking surrounding towns and villages to the city.
The Greater Cambridge Partnership has launched a rolling programme of public engagement on the Greenways to give communities an opportunity to shape how each route will look, aiming to provide better walking and cycling links, and cater to equestrians where appropriate.
When complete, there will be about 150km of Greenways to provide new and improved active travel links to more than 50 communities and public transport hubs.
The public engagement programme kicked off this week with people encouraged to share their views on the options for the designs for the Comberton Greenway.
The route will connect Comberton with the city centre via Coton, and the Cambridge University West Campus, with a spur to Hardwick.
From next week (11 July), the GCP will invite people to share their thoughts on the designs of the Haslingfield Greenway route which connects the village with Cambridge via Grantchester and a link to Hauxton.
Engagement on the Comberton Greenway began on 4 July and closes on 29 July, with a public drop-in event at Comberton Village Hall on 8 July and a virtual event on 20 July.
The Haslingfield Greenway engagement gets underway from 11 July and ends on 5 August, with a public drop-in event at Haslingfield Village Hall on 12 July and a virtual event on 18 July.
In the autumn, the GCP is planning to present designs for the Barton, Sawston and Melbourn as part of the rolling public engagement programme.
The public feedback will be considered as part of further design and planning work and engagement with landowners along the routes
