The Cambridge South East Transport project aims to provide better public transport, walking and cycling options for those who travel in the A1307 and A1301 area, improving journey times and linking communities and employment sites in the area south east of Cambridge.
Ground investigation surveys along the A1307 between Addenbrooke's and Linton are ongoing. This work is to test soils and will be brief at any location. Some temporary traffic lights outside of peak hours may be required.
The work involves making excavations (trial pits) and boreholes to investigate and test the soils. This is needed to finalise the detailed designs of some Phase 1 schemes.
The Phase 1 schemes include road safety, walking, cycling and bus priority measures along the A1307.
The proposals will provide additional capacity for the growth of journeys
to, from and around Cambridge from the south east."

The Cambridge South East Transport project is made up of two phases.
Phase 1 looks at road safety, walking cycling and bus priority measures along the A1307 between Haverhill and Cambridge. Some of these elements are low cost and do not require extra land, as they are within the highway, or planning consent. These can be completed quickly.
A continuous multi-user path for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders is planned from Cambridge to Linton and will form part of the Linton Greenway. More information on Greenways is available on the Greenways project page.
Phase 2 of the scheme involves a new public transport route from the A11 via Sawston and Shelford to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. Alongside this new public transport route will be a new path for walkers, cyclists and horse riders, similar to the one along the existing guided busways.
The proposals also include a new Park & Ride site near the A11/A505 interchange.
More details on the project are on the project's background page.
The Phase 1 elements of road safety, junction, walking and cycling improvements along the A1307 have been approved and are scheduled to be built and implemented over the next two years. Works to be carried out in the next year include:
For Phase 2 of the scheme, we are currently further developing the detailed proposals for Strategy 1 for the long-term public transport route. We will then consult with you again on the details of this route.
Local Liaison Forums provide for regular dialogue between the project team and members of the local community during the course of any major transport project, ensuring interested parties are kept informed and can continue to have their say outside of formal consultation processes.
LLFs are chaired by local
