The Barton Greenway is a proposed route for cyclists, pedestrians and where possible equestrians. It will run from Barton into Cambridge.

This route is now going through a public consultation where we would like your input. To get involved, please follow the link to our interactive consultation website:

 P R O P O S E D  R O U T E S

  • Barton to Grantchester via  a bridleway over the M11
  • Baulk route linking Barton route to Grantchester Road
  • Barton to Cambridge via Barton Road
  • Path resurfacing and widening along Barton Road between Barton and Cambridge
  • Proposals to redesign both junctions between Barton Road and the M11 Slip Roads
  • Resurfacing the bridleway linking Barton and Grantchester
  • Redesign of New Road and Cambridge Road Junction

Q U I E T   R O U T E

Where a Greenway route is on road these will typically have very low traffic volumes below two thousand vehicles per day. In some cases the speed limit would be reduced to 20mph and white painted signage could be used to warn motorists of other users on the carriageway. 

S H A R E D  U S E   P A T H

The standard width for these paths will be 3 metres wide. Where possible a grassy strip will run parallel to segregate horse riders. 

Where the path runs beside the carriageway a green verge will separate this path from the road, this will be made as wide as possible to enhance the feeling of safety. 

P R O T E C T E D   P A T H

A standard width of 3 metres wide,, this path will have features to separate cyclists and pedestrians. Where possible, as much protection from the carriageway will be applied, this may include grass verges or shrubs.
