The Sawston Greenway will provide safer and better route for people walking, cycling and, where appropriate, horse-riding between Sawston, Stapleford, Great Shelford and Addenbrooke’s/Biomedical Campus.
The Greater Cambridge Greenways will follow off-road paths, along quiet streets or provide improved facilities along busier roads to provide more people with safer, easier and more direct routes in and out of Cambridge.
Designs are being developed for the Sawston Greenway.
Forthcoming early works on the greenway include traffic-calming in Stapleford and widening of the DNA Path between Stapleford and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
Due to rising construction costs, we are pausing work on a proposed off-road link alongside the railway line from Shelford Station south to the Dernford Resevoir, which would have required major embankments to protect the railway. The main route through Stapleford on Chaston Road, Hinton Way, Mingle Lane and on to A1301 will continue to be developed.
