PRE-CONSULTATION ENGAGEMENT

The Greater Cambridge Partnership plans to formally consult on potential improvements for walking and cycling along Madingley Road in late 2019 or early 2020.

In order to help develop options we asking local residents, workers and regular users of Madingley Road to give us their views on what needs improving in order to make walking and cycling along the route more attractive.

View the pre-consultation map at our community engagement hub Consult Cambs and let us know your views by 12 June 2019.

In addition to online pre-consultation, we are also engaging in person with key stakeholders including Councillors and representatives from Residents’ Associations, local businesses and workplaces. If you are a representative looking to get involved in the project please email the GCP outlining your interest to constactus@greatercambridge.org.uk.

The Greater Cambridge Partnership is considering ideas for improving walking and cycling on Madingley Road

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.

Frequently asked questions

No, this project focuses on improvements which can be achieved within the highways boundaries. We do not anticipate taking any land from local residential properties i.e. front gardens or driveways.

Formal consultation will take place in late 2019 or early 2020.
