Description

Cambourne to Cambridge

From November 2017 to January 2018 we ran a public consultation to gain feedback on the proposed ideas we put forward to improve transport from Cambourne to Cambridge. 

We asked for your views on how we can deliver, faster and more reliable bus services, together with high-quality cycling and walking facilities and a new Park & Ride site. 

Our independent research team have put together the consultation findings in a report that is now available for you to view. This report will be used to help our Executive Board make a decision on how to proceed with the scheme. This decision is expected to take place in Summer 2018

 

Background 

The Cambourne to Cambridge: Better Bus Journeys scheme aims to deliver fast and reliable bus services, with high-quality cycling and walking facilities, as well as a new Park & Ride site for those people travelling into Cambridge from towns and villages to the west of the city. 

The A428 has been listed as a key growth route, with 8,800 new homes and 15,000 new jobs planned between Cambridge and St Neots by 2031. 

By allowing for faster and more reliable bus journeys for people travelling between Cambourne and Cambridge and other key destinations, we will be helping existing and new communities along the A428 and A1303 to grow sustainably, keeping people well connected to jobs and key services in the Greater Cambridge area. 

Aims of the scheme:

- Provide a public transport network which delivers a step change in reliability, connectivity, frequency and quality, to support greater use of public transport, walking and cycling into and around the Greater Cambridge area. 

- Facilitate sustainable development, particularly at key strategic economic and housing sites. 

- Address air quality by providing attractive alternatives to driving. 

- Improve access to opportunity and maximise accessibility for all. 

- Support our local businesses by addressing the transport barriers which restrict growth. 

Purpose and options

The Cambourne to Cambridge project is split into two phases - this public consultation focuses on phase one and the proposed options for a new bus route between Cambridge and a new park and ride site to the east of Cambourne.

The Greater Cambridge Partnership would like you to tell us your preferred option for the proposed park and ride site and your preferred option for the new bus route. All options are listed below.

We also welcome any comments and feedback you have on the proposed scheme. 

Park & Ride site proposals

Scotland Farm, which is located at the junction of the A428 and Scotland Road, Dry Drayton. 

The Waterworks, located at the junction of St Neots Road and the A1303 Madingley Road, near the 'Madingley Mulch' roundabout.  

Bus route proposals

Route A (previously known as option 1) - An on-road option which includes the introduction of a bus lane on Madingley Road between the Madingley Mulch roundabout and Lady Margaret Road.

Route B (previously known as option 6) - An on-road tidal bus lane on Madingley Road running between the Madingley Mulch roundabout and the new entrance to Eddington (High Cross).

Route C (previously known as option 3/3a) - An off-road busway running between the Madingley Mulch roundabout and Grange Road, Cambridge.
