This project aims to improve cycling and walking links near Ditton Lane. A shared-use foot and cycleway will be created between Fison Road and  Fen Ditton Primary School.

This new cycleway also links with National Cycle Network 11 and 51 (NCN 11 & NCN 51), which crosses Ditton Lane near Fison Road and then runs parallel to the River Cam and connects the City Centre with East Cambridge.

This route is extensively used by cyclists heading to Newmarket Park & Ride and Marshalls. In the future, the new foot and cycleway is also likely to be used by those travelling to the Wing housing development by Newmarket Road.

A cycleway from Fison Road to Fen Ditton Primary School will encourage sustainable journeys to the School. This new route will also connect to the existing Horningsea cycleway.

Works will include reinforcing the bank and will require the removal of the trees, which are in poor condition on top of the bank, in the area south of the main junction. The verge will be enhanced with bulb planting in a joint Parish and Greater Cambridge Partnership enterprise. Fen Ditton Primary School is also involved in design of the new path.

Works will also include renewing and replacing the fencing along the kerbline next to the new shared use foot and cycleway.

Throughout the planning process, local residents have been updated on traffic management measures and project timescales.

Information events have also been held for members of the community. Local councillors and Fen Ditton parish council meet regularly with the Project Team to discuss all aspects of the cycleway scheme and its delivery.

This cycleway project is currently allocated a budget of around £1m.

The budget will be reviewed as detailed measures are determined.
