Upgrades to two key routes to improve walking and cycling journeys

Work to resurface a 220m stretch of a popular cycle route between Stourbridge Common and Riverside Bridge in Cambridge has been completed. It will form part of the Greater Cambridge Greenways network, linking the Horningsea, Bottisham and Swaffham’s routes as well as the Abbey Chesterton Bridge and Chisholm Trail project, which is currently under construction.

Work is also underway on resurfacing a 300m section of path on the Coton M11 bridleway bridge to make cycling, walking and other active travel journeys safer. This path will eventually become part of the Comberton Greenway linking Comberton, Hardwick and Coton to the West Cambridge Campus, Eddington and the city centre.

The work - commissioned by the GCP in partnership with Highways England, which recently carried out major repairs to the bridge - is expected to finish in April.

The Greater Cambridge Partnership’s Executive Board has approved 12 Greenways – a network of walking, cycling and equestrian routes linking surrounding villages to the city and key employment sites.
