Histon Road is a key gateway into Cambridge, a modal shift to bus, cycling and walking would protect local communities from the adverse effects of increased congestion
The Histon Road project aims to improve the bus, cycle and walking infrastructure to make these options a more attractive alternative to travel by car.
Bus priority measures could include: bus lanes, smart signals to prioritise buses and side-road closures to reduce the need for signals, which add to journey times along the road.
Bus lanes, smart signals and side-road closures
The benefits of the Histon Road scheme include:
In winter 2015/16 an initial consultation was carried out on bus priority and cycling and walking improvements on Histon Road.
This consultation was held in tandem with the nearby Milton Road consultation. Following feedback on the two options, 'Do Maximum' and ‘Do Something’, the ‘Do Maximum’ proposal has been taken forward.
Quicker bus journeys and wider cycle lanes
Local Liaison Forums provide for regular dialogue between members of the project team and the local community during the course of any major transport project ensuring interested parties are kept informed and can continue to have their say outside formal consultation processes.
The LLF is open to the public and all are welcome to attend.

The Histon Road project is currently allocated a budget of around £4 million.
The budget will be reviewed as detailed measures are determined.
