The A10 Foot and Cycleway is a shared vision of local residents, councillors, campaigners and project officers alike.

The aim is to ultimately see a high quality, consistent foot and cycle link extend from Cambridge all the way through to Royston, aligning with the A10 route.

The Greater Cambridge Partnership has overseen the a creation of a local link within this vision that links Frog End to Melbourn via a foot and cycleway. 

The Melbourn to Frog End Foot and Cycleway opened in March 2107

Over time this route is being completed piece by piece, with money coming from several pots of funding. The Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP), in recognising the potential to create a well-used link for commuter cyclists, has funded an important part of this route between Melbourn, Frog End and Shepreth.

The route connects large employment sites, such as the Melbourn Science Park and Sagentia, with local rail stations. The path is a generous 2.5m wide and completely separated from motor traffic. As well as providing local residents and employees with a link to local amenities and workplaces, the path is widely used for recreational purposes like lunch break jogging sessions and leisurely family cycle rides.

This Melbourn to Frog End route was created under budget at a cost of £550,000.  

Previously, work was completed on an improved shared-use foot and cycleway from the south of Harston along the A10 to the outskirts of Melbourn.  This work was funded by a Cycle city Ambition grant from the Department for Transport.

Although the Melbourn to Frog End link has now been completed, the overall vision of a cycle link from Cambridge to Royston is still in progress. The next step in completing this concept is a Foot and Cycleway through Harston.
