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 have asked local residents, workers and regular users of Madingley Road to give us their views online 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 below.
In addition to gathering input online, 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 send an email to the GCP outlining your interest to email@example.com.
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.
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.
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.
