Still time to have your say on Cambourne to Cambridge scheme options

Published: Tuesday, January 2, 2018

There is still time for people to have their say on the Cambourne to Cambridge Better Bus Journeys consultation which continues this month with two extra public events.

More than 1300 people have already had their say on the scheme which proposes a new Park and Ride, improved bus journeys and walking and cycling facilities along the A428.

Residents, commuters and groups can take part in the Greater Cambridge Partnership consultation online or by attending one of two additional public drop-in events to be held this month at:

  • Dry Drayton Village Hall, High Street, Dry Drayton - 9 January, 6-8pm.
  • Selwyn College, Grange Road, Cambridge - 18 January, 6-8pm.

The 11 week consultation began in November with the partnership’s consultation bus stopping at 19 venues and public spaces in Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire before Christmas.

The Cambourne to Cambridge scheme, put forward by the Partnership, aims to provide fast, reliable and sustainable transport links between existing and new homes and places of employment.

With almost 9,000 new homes planned in communities along these roads by 2031 – and a further 3,700 at St Neots – the number of commuting trips is expected to increase by up to 30 percent.

The Cambourne to Cambridge project will help to alleviate this demand and reduce congestion on the roads by providing alternative and sustainable transport options.

After the consultation closes on 29 January the responses will be evaluated by Cambridgeshire County Council’s Research Team.

Once this work is complete, anonymised responses will be published on the partnership’s website. The GCP’s Executive Board will consider how to proceed with the project at a public meeting in the summer.

Any scheme will be ‘future-proofed’ to support emerging or future forms of mass rapid transit. The findings of a report jointly commissioned by the Partnership and the Combined Authority looking at future modes of transport will be published this month.
