What was consulted on?
Following public consultation in the winter of 2015/16 and the development of Histon Road through public engagement, the Greater Cambridge Partnership brought forward proposals for better public transport, walking and cycling journeys along Histon Road.
We asked for comments on:
As a key route into and out of Cambridge, The Greater Cambridge Partnership is looking at a range of measures to improve journeys along Histon Road, these measures will:
Histon Road is a key route into and out of Cambridge, by improving public transport options, we can encourage people to use alternative, and more environmentally friendly modes of transport"
Cambridge is the fastest growing city in the UK - bringing many benefits to those who live and work in the area. But its success has also led to an increase in traffic on routes into the city - including Histon Road, leading to peak-time traffic congestion, delays for commuters and affecting the quality of life for residents.
With the population of Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire expected to rise by up to 28% over the next decade, many thousands of extra journeys into and out of the city - to places of work, study and leisure can be expected.
The Histon Road scheme will help to accommodate these extra trips whilst upgrading the road to a safe, pleasant and connected community for local residents and businesses. To achieve this, the scheme aims to improve public transport journey times, as well as cycling and walking facilities, to encourage people to use sustainable modes of transport as an alternative to the car.
Quicker public transport journeys and improved cycle lanes
The consultation is now closed and all of the responses will be collated by Cambridgeshire County Council's Research Team and the Consultation Report will be published in the Autumn 2018.
Following this, and taking all of the supporting information and consultation responses into account, the Project Team will prepare a final preliminary design which the Greater Cambridge Partnership's Executive Board will consider.
