This page provides further background information on the Histon Road project. Please also have  a look at the main Histon Road project page for the latest information.

This project is being developed with reference to the Milton Road scheme, as both roads are key routes from the A14 into the city. The Executive Board has chosen to prioritise works on Milton Road at this time. 

D O  M A X I M U M

Histon Road/Huntingdon Road/Victoria Road Junction Improvements

More green light time for Histon Road traffic to reduce delays, particularly for buses 

  • Banning the right-turn into Histon Road from Victoria Road except for local buses and bicycles
  • Motorised vehicles will no longer have access to Victoria Road
  • Traffic will still be able to reach Huntingdon Road from Victoria Road 

Gilbert Road/Warwick Road Junction Improvements

  • Improvements to the traffic signals to better accommodate buses and cyclists

Better facilities for cycling  

  • Banning the right-turn into Warwick Road to reduce traffic delays
  • Improving the surrounding look and feel of the area

Bus priority, junction improvements and better facilities for cycling

CROSS SECTION

The cross section above shows a model layout of how the whole road width could be divided between cars, buses, cycles and pedestrians. In some sections the road is not wide enough to accommodate both bus and cycle lanes. At other points where bus and cycle lanes are segregated, land would be required outside the highway boundary to accommodate these ideas.
