CLOSED CONSULTATIONS

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Why do we need another Park & Ride?

The existing Madingley Road Park & Ride is due to reach capacity by 2022. New Park & Ride provision is needed as the area continues to grow and attract more businesses. Park & Ride provision further out from Cambridge is needed to relieve significant congestion from Madingley Mulch Roundabout into the city, set to worsen in coming years if we do not act now.

When will all of this happen?

CAM Strategic Outline Business Case (SOBC)

Complete the SOBC evaluation

Jan 2019

Final detailed alignment consultation

A public consultation on the options for Phase 2 including a P&R location.

Early 2019

OBC to Executive Board

Having completed the optioneering public consultations, the Board will be presented with the OBC for selection of a single option between Cambourne and Cambridge and P&R site. At this stage the Board will be asked to authorise submission of application for statutory powers and planning consent.

October   2019

Seek authority to construct project

Following the completion of the statutory permissions stage which includes a formal consultation on the details of a single scheme, the Board will be presented with the Final Business Case for approval. This will trigger the construction of the project if approved.

Between 2021 and 2022 depending on statutory powers process

What happens when the route gets to Bourn Airfield and Cambourne?

All route options link into an on-road section within Cambourne where the road network does not allow for a segregated, traffic-free route. The final route would be agreed with the service operator.

 What is the Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro (CAM)?

A study looking into options for Mass Rapid Transit (commissioned by the Combined Authority and GCP) found that a new Metro system is a viable option for Greater Cambridge - providing the capacity and the flexibility to help meet the area’s future transport needs at an affordable price. CAM is a high-quality tram-like system, running in rubber tyres; it is a flexible form of public transport that can run both over or underground. The Cambourne to Cambridge public transport route must align with plans for future development of a wider, regional Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro network.

 What will this mean for the environment?

The route taken forward will be subject to a full Environmental Impact Assessment to identify suitable mitigation works and where possible enhance the local environment, including;

  • landscaping & design proposals to minimise visual and environmental impact,
  • high-quality, environmental sustainable vehicles to mitigate air pollution and noise, e.g. fully electric,
  • infrastructure to reflect local requirements and the local surroundings,
  • development of extensive walking & cycling facilities.

We engage with statutory, local and environmental groups to gain input on any proposals.

 Will it affect other bus routes i.e. X5, Citi 4?

Currently Stagecoach run a half-hourly commercial coach service, the X5, directly along the A428, which links Oxford, Milton Keynes, Bedford, St Neots and Cambridge. A local Citi 4 service also runs along the A428/A1303. At this stage there are no specific changes planned as a result of these proposals, however, timetabling is subject to the decisions of the bus operators.

 Will the buses be electric?

The public transport vehicle operating along the route will be high-quality and low-emissions, consistent with the principles of the CAM.

 What about the end of the Cambourne to Cambridge journey, into the city beyond Grange Road?

GCP is working up plans to tackle congestion within Cambridge, planning to achieve a reduction in peak-time traffic levels by 10-15% by 2031.
