A new Greenway - an off-road route for cyclists, pedestrians and equestrians - is proposed to connect Swaffham Prior and Swaffham Bulbeck to Cambridge.
There is an existing walking and cycling route from Cambridge to Swaffham Prior via Stow cum Quy, Lode and Swaffham Bulbeck. However, the path has gaps and a number of sections are of poor quality.
The options for the new route are still being developed but are likely to follow the B1102 from Fen Ditton up to Swaffham Bulbeck and Swaffham Prior. Alternatively, a route following a parallel disused railway line is also being investigated.
The proposals include new sections of path and improvements to the existing route. A new Greenway will enable residents of the Swaffhams to visit key destinations and employment areas, such as Marshalls, Cambridge Airport and Cambridge North.
Please note that the route and features of a Swaffhams Greenway is not finalised and we are currently refining the proposals to include community feedback.
We spoke to the local community about potential options and to gather feedback earlier this year. We are now analysing this feedback and working up options. We will be consulting on proposals for a Swaffhams Greenway in 2019.
