Summary

A new Greenway - an off-road route for cyclists, pedestrians and equestrians - is proposed to connect Fulbourn to Cambridge.

There is an existing off-road walking and cycling path from Cambridge to Fulbourn, but improvements are needed to make it a high-quality off-road route.

The new Greenway will connect up residents from Fulbourn with Cambridge, along with Cherry Hinton. It will also allow an off-road route for visiting key destinations and employment opportunities such as Cambridge Biomedical Campus (CBC), Cambridge Station, Mill Road area and Cambridge city centre.

Proposed route

Please note that the route and features of a Fulbourn Greenway are not finalised and we are currently refining the proposals to include community feedback.

  • The route starts at Cambridge Station and links with other proposed Greenways and the Chisholm Trail.
  • It travels across the railway using the Carter Bridge on Devonshire Road and then through local streets in Romsey and to the path known locally as The Tins.
  • The connection to Cherry Hinton is made via a proposed upgraded or replacement railway bridge, depending on negotiations with Network Rail.
  • It travels past Tesco on Yarrow Road via Capital Park and the Ida Darwin Hospital and onward to Fulbourn via Fulbourn Old Drift and Hinton Rd.

Key features

  • Improve route in several places, particularly at junctions and interfaces between on and off-road sections of route.
  • Widen existing path in Cherry Hinton for 100m between Orchard Estate and Railway Street.
  • Alter junction and widen paths for improved route in and near Cherry Hinton High Street, between Railway Street and Fulbourn Old Drift.
  • Add new 200m paths to link with signalled crossing by Tesco store, Yarrow Road. Upgrade crossing to Toucan crossing.
  • Widen path for 150m to the rear of Tesco store on Yarrow Road.
  • Refurbish the Carter Bridge, including decking and panels surrounding the bridge, which will enable better future cleaning and maintenance.
