This consultation is now closed


As part of our plans to improve the infrastructure in Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire, the Greater Cambridge Partnership has identified three strategies which will help deliver faster, more reliable and high-quality public transport links for journeys to the south east of Cambridge. 

All three long-term strategies include bus priority, junction improvements, walking and cycling measures and road safety improvements along the A1307 between Haverhill and Cambridge. It is intended to progress these works, subject to consultation as quickly as possible. 

Longer-term public transport improvements consist of three high-level strategies, these are: 

  • Strategy 1 - a new dedicated Mass Rapid Transit route between the A11 and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus via Sawston, Stapleford, Great Shelford with onward connection to the city centre. It would partly following the route of the dismantled railway line. The multi-user path alongside the proposed transport route could form part of the Sawston Greenway.
  • Strategy 2 - an inbound bus lane from Babraham Research Campus to Babraham Road Park & Ride and a new dedicated public transport link between the Park & Ride and Cambridge Biomedical Campus, with onward connection the city centre.
  • Strategy 3 - inbound bus lanes from Babraham Research Campus to the Addenbrooke's Hospital roundabout with onward connection to the city centre.
  • All three strategies include a new Park & Ride site close to the A11

Aims of the scheme:

- Provide for faster and more reliable journeys for those travelling into, out of and around south east Cambridge

- Reduce congestion and improve air quality 

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

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

Next Steps

All responses will be collated and evaluated by Cambridgeshire County Council’s Research Team.  Once this work is complete, anonymised responses will be published.  These responses will also inform further work on the three strategies.
