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, a short length of bus lane, smart signals, and improved facilities for cycling which will not only improve safety but also allow for enhanced  traffic. 

Histon Road is a key route into and out of Cambridge, improving journey times and reducing congestion will provide benefits for those that live, work and visit Cambridge.

The benefits of the Histon Road scheme include:

  • Quicker and more reliable bus journeys
  • Wider cycle lanes, segregated where possible
  • New planting areas
  • Improved public spaces
  • Improved road safety

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.

A detailed programme of LLF workshops took place through the autumn and winter of 2016/17 from which a set of resolutions emerged. Officers prepared responses to these resolutions which have been agreed by the Executive Board. The basis of these responses are now being used to draw up a preferred design.

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.
