Scheme 15 – Bartlow Road roundabout completed

Construction of the roundabout started in May 2023 and was completed in February 2024 - two months ahead of schedule. 

The new roundabout will improve road safety and help people’s journeys along the A1307 is now open in all directions.

The roundabout was constructed in four phases to minimise disruption and, along with junction improvements at Dean Crossroads, to enhance road safety and improve bus, walking and cycling links between Cambridge and Haverhill.

Scheme 3 – Linton Greenway

Scheme 3, the Linton Greenway, has been divided into 5 sections. Sections 1 and 2 are already complete.

  • Section 4 has been spilt into two phases of work, with phase 1 early works due to start in summer 2024 between Newmarket Road and Granta Park.
  • Section 5 of the greenway is also in progress, with sections of the active travel path between Hildersham and Linton already widened.
  • Section 3 involves further design work on the bridge crossing the A11 and is due to start construction in 2025. 
  • The route would then continue on-road through the Abingtons to the Hildersham crossroads. 

Phase 2 update


The GCP Executive Board agreed to pause CSET phase 2, against the backdrop of rising inflation which is impacting GCP’s programme.

The business case for CSET phase 2 demonstrates the busway is the most suitable solution to the planned growth at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. Therefore, the GCP will continue to seek funding to deliver the scheme.

The pause of phase 2 does not impact the planned road safety, walking and cycling improvements along the A1307 as part of phase 1.
