Thousands of people have already taken part in the Greater Cambridge Travel Survey – but there is still time for you to tell us the improvements in transport in the Cambridge area you would like to see.
Almost 50,000 copies of the travel survey have been posted through residents’ letterboxes and officers have knocked on more than 1,300 doors, and more than 3,000 people have visited the Travel for Cambridge website since the survey launched.
The survey is being carried out by Travel for Cambridgeshire on behalf of the Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) as part of our ‘Big Conversation’ campaign.
With congestion and the amount of time motorists sit waiting in traffic in Cambridge and the wider region expected to double by 2030, the information obtained from the travel will be used to help shape future investment in the transport network.
Cllr Francis Burkitt, Chair of the Greater Cambridge Partnership, said: “Thousands of people have completed the survey so far, which will help us build an even more comprehensive picture about how people currently travel around Cambridge and the district. People have also submitted some interesting ideas about how we could improve the transport network in the future.
“Greater Cambridge is growing, with tens of thousands of new homes and jobs being generated – this is a great thing, but we need to ensure people will be able to travel around easily, reliably, fast, at the time they want to, and in a low-polluting way.
“This survey will help us to prioritise future investment in the areas people have told us will make a difference – so please keep those questionnaires coming in!”
You can take part in the survey online at TfC's website or by completing a questionnaire and posting it back to TfC using freepost. The survey closes on 6 November.
