Delivered as part of the Cross City Cycling package, the project sought to make it easier for walkers and cyclists to reach the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and the bus stops at the Addenbrooke’s roundabout from the Hills Road/Long Road/Queen Edith’s Way junction.

The project linked with the earlier Hills Road cycleway scheme between Cherry Hinton Road and the Long Road/Queen Edith’s Way junction. It delivered:

  • Safer crossings at the junction of Hills Road, Long Road and Queen Edith’s Way and dedicated raised cycle lanes as well as two new bus stops
  • A new toucan crossing on Hills Road at the Addenbrooke’s roundabout
  • Two floating bus stops, with lead-in cycle lanes on the approach to the junction and a 9m deep advanced stop box
  • An outbound lead-in cycle lane located between the two traffic lanes to help the majority of cyclists reach the middle and right side of the advanced stop box, then make the diagonal movement to the west side of Hills Road (south of the junction) or the right turn into Long Road

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.
