Our consultation on options for walking and cycling improvements on Madingley Road is now closed. Thank you to everyone who took the time to share their thoughts with us.
The Greater Cambridge Partnership consulted on potential improvements for walking and cycling along Madingley Road. The consultation closed at midday on Monday 2 March 2020.
A consultation report will go to our Joint Assembly and Executive Board in June 2020.
You can still find the consultation details on our ConsultCambs platform, for information.
In order to help develop options, in early summer 2019 we asked local residents, workers and regular users of Madingley Road to give us their views online on what needs improving in order to make walking and cycling along the route more attractive. The report on this online pre-consultation engagement is available in the documents section below.
In addition to gathering input online, we also engaged in person with key stakeholders including Councillors and representatives from Residents’ Associations and local workplaces.
If you are a representative looking to get involved in the project please send an email to the GCP outlining your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following a local campaign to improve cycling provision along Madingley Road, the Greater Cambridge Partnership is looking to improve sustainable travel along this key route into the city.
- Create clear, dedicated cycling and walking routes from Northampton Street roundabout to the Park & Ride site
- Redesign junctions along the road to improve access for those travelling on foot or by bike
- Improve the look and feel of the street with additional landscaping including more trees and planting
- Increase access to the West Cambridge site and Eddington
- Aid future economic growth in the city
Madingley Road was previously considered as a potential route to improve bus capacity as part of the Cambourne to Cambridge scheme. However, traffic modelling has suggested that there would be limited benefit for public transport along this part of the route into the city from the west.
In December 2018, the GCP Executive Board formally separated Madingley Road from the Cambourne to Cambridge project and instructed officers to look into improving walking and cycling along the road.
