This is one of five Cross City Cycling projects that aim to reduce congestion and improve air quality, health and road safety. The project is designed to improve links to schools, homes and places of employment in the east of Cambridge.
- Easier and safer cycling from the Robin Hood junction in Cherry Hinton to Yarrow Road in Fulbourn.
- Improved active travel access to local employment, including the international headquarters of microprocessor producer, ARM.
- Better active travel provision for nearby residential developments.
- Improving the cycling provision on Fulbourn Road and in the local area helps create a more comprehensive cycle network in East Cambridge. It can also reduce pressure on the local transport network.
The final section of the Fulbourn Road scheme will be constructed as part of the Robin Hood Junction upgrade works being carried out by Cambridgeshire County Council this year (2021).
This final section includes two new floating bus stops on the north and south sides of the road, along with cycle lanes to the junction.
- As part of the Robin Hood Junction upgrade, we are installing two new floating bus stops and cycle lanes to the junction.
- The shared use path on. the north side of Fulbourn Road has been widened to between 3.0 and 3.5m east of the Leete Road crossing
- At the end of construction, mature hedges were planted to fill in any gaps on the south side of Fulbourn Road between the Leete Road crossing and Queen Edith’s Way.
- We have planted new trees and sections of mature hedges in liaison with Cambridge City Council landscape architects.
- We are also working together on the landscaping of the open space between Fulbourn Road and Malletts Road.
