Project Summary

In January 2015, the Executive Board agreed that the Cross City Cycling projects should form part of the City Deal programme.

A report was presented at the August 2015 Executive Board to approve the five Cross City Cycling projects and to consult on these. The Executive Board agreed to these recommendations.

A public consultation was held on the five projects in January 2016. The results were then reported to the Board in June 2016. The Board approved all five projects and increased the funding.

Construction has finished on four of the five schemes, with work on the final route in early 2021.

All reports can be found in the documents page. Information on the individual projects is on the project pages.


The Cross City Cycling project is a network of five cycling routes to make it safer and easier for people to travel between their home and places of work, education and leisure.


There are five key projects, and a set of "quick win" measures:

  • Arbury Road
  • Cambridge North Railway Station and Science Park
  • Ditton Lane & Links to East Cambridge
  • Hills Road and Cambridge Biomedical Campus
  • Fulbourn/Cherry Hinton Eastern Access


Construction has finished on four of the five schemes, with work on the final route being undertaken in 2021 and onwards.


The GCP has worked with partners in the County Council and contracted civil engineering companies to deliver these projects


The project aims to encourage more people to travel by bicycle which will help to reduce congestion and improve air quality, health and road safety.

Key benefits:

  • Reduced congestion
  • Improved health
  • Improved air quality
  • Easier to cycle
  • More cycle parking
  • Improved safety
