Upgrades to improve journeys in Linton ongoingPublished: Friday, February 07, 2020
A new bus lane to provide quicker and more reliable public transport journeys along the A1307 has been completed.
The new bus lane is now operational along the eastbound carriageway between Dalehead Foods and Linton Village College.
Work has included road safety and junction improvements along this busy road. The shared use path has also been widened to make it safer and easier for pedestrians and cyclists.
Construction will also begin next week to install traffic lights on the A1307 junction with Linton High Street to improve safety and the flow of traffic.
Three-way temporary traffic lights will be in place during the junction improvement work in Linton High Street. The work begins on 10 February and is expected to take six weeks.
This work is all part of the first phase of the Cambridge South East Transport scheme – the second phase of which plans to create a transformational off-road public transport route from the A11 via Sawston and Shelford to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus along with better routes for walking, cycling and other uses. The scheme will also include a new travel hub where motorists can park their cars and switch to public transport.
The findings of a public consultation on the route options for phase two of the scheme will also be published this month before a recommended route is put before the GCP’s Executive Board for a decision in the summer.
