Work on A1307 cycling and walking upgrades to begin

Published: Wednesday, June 30, 2021

Cyclists, pedestrians and other active travel users will enjoy safer and smoother journeys in the Copley Hill area later this summer after improvements to an existing active travel route.

The Greater Cambridge Partnership is starting work next week to upgrade the route between the end of the A1307 dual carriageway at Magog Farm Barns to the junctions at Copley Hill Business Park.

The active travel route will be widened, realigned, and resurfaced, along with other safety improvements, during the six-week construction period which begins on 5 July.

During construction, the eastbound lane of the A1307 will be narrowed and a temporary 40mph speed limit will be in place. Temporary traffic lights may also be required during off-peak hours.

A safe route for pedestrians and cyclists will be maintained throughout the duration of the work.

This work forms part of phase one of the GCP’s Cambridge South East Transport scheme, with a number of schemes being delivered along the A1307 to enhance active travel routes, introduce bus priority measures and improve road safety for all users.
