Green End Road

Delivered as part of the Cross City Cycling package, the Cambridge North railway station and science park project sought to improve links to schools, homes and places of employment in northeast Cambridge, making it easier to reach Cambridge North Railway Station and the science park.

It included:

  • extended double yellow lines outside Chesterton primary school
  • new double yellow lines from the junction with Scotland Road to Water Lane, with gaps to allow parking outside local shops
  • traffic calming cushions
  • a new floating bus stop near Frank’s Lane
  • new, segregated 2m wide cycle lanes
  • a realigned Nuffield Road junction
  • new landscaping including replacement trees to replace those which needed to be removed as part of the project

The scheme was formally opened in 2019.

In 2016 following consultation with the public, the executive board agreed a package of five projects.

The Cross City Cycling package, which sought to make it safer and easier for people to travel by bike, consisted of five schemes:

  • Arbury Road
  • Cambridge North railway station and science park
  • Ditton Lane and links to east Cambridge
  • Hills Road and Cambridge Biomedical Campus
  • Fulbourn and Cherry Hinton eastern access

All schemes were completed by 2021.
