  • Linking south-east Cambridge to its superstores, shops and facilities.
  • Creating better schools runs to Fulbourn Primary and Cherry Hinton primary, The Netherhall School and St. Bede’s Inter-Church School.
  • A direct, low-stress, low-traffic route away from main roads for walking, wheeling and cycling.

Where we are

The greenway is being developed in two phases.

  • We are developing detailed designs for Phase 1: eastern section, which runs from Fulbourn village to the Yarrow Road.
  • We are working with Network Rail on proposals for Phase 2: western section, which runs from Yarrow Road to Cambridge Railway Station.

How we got here

A first public consultation was held in Autumn 2018 and our decision-making Executive Board agreed funds for the greenway in February 2020.

With updated designs, we sough public feedback for four weeks in Summer 2023. Leaflets were delivered to 9,600 households and businesses and we held an online webinar and a drop-in event anyone could attend. Anyone could submit comments online, over the phone or via the post.

Our January 2024 Executive Board meeting agreed to progress the eastern section (phase 1) with the changes outlined in our You Said We Did Report.

Subject to agreements with Network Rail further engagement on phase two of the greenway will be carried out.
