Route details

Comberton Greenway will be 6 miles with 2.5 miles of other links.

The draft route starts in Comberton and will include a further improvement to the existing link towards Barton. The main route heads north alongside Long Road and is joined by a link from Hardwick. The greenway then continues towards Coton. There are additional wide grassy verges for horse riders, joggers and ramblers. We will use bee-friendly plants to make the route attractive and support a wide range of wildlife. The area around the M11 bridge will have a wider pathway and a new surface. The greenway then carries on past the Cambridge University West Campus. A new link branches off towards Barton Road before the path continues along Adams Road, Grange Road and Sidgwick Avenue before reaching Silver Street. It then joins other cycle roads into and around Cambridge.
