The Milton Road consultation is now closed. Thank you to those who attended events, provided feedback and comments, as well as completing our questionnaire. We will now collate and analyse these responses and produce a report in early 2019. 

What was consulted on?

An initial consultation was held in the winter of 2015/16 which considered bus priority, cycling and walking measures along Milton Road. 

The results of this previous consultation, plus further engagement work with the local community, including LLF's and design workshops, have helped the Project Team to develop the Milton Road proposals which were put forward for consultation in Autumn 2018. 

To find out more about what was consulted on, visit our dedicated consultation website.

Historic documents regarding the scheme can be found on the Milton Road LLF page

Milton Road is vital to the local economy, and by improving bus journeys, cycling and pedestrian facilities we can keep people moving whilst the economy continues to grow"

As a key route into and out of Cambridge, the Greater Cambridge Partnership is looking at a range of measures to improve journeys along Milton Road, these measures will: 

  • Allow faster and more reliable public transport journeys 
  • Provide better cycling and walking links
  • Enhance the streetscape with improved and additional landscaping
  • Reduce peak time congestion and limit growth in traffic
  • Aid future economic growth
  • Reduce air pollution and improve public health

Milton Road is a well-known and busy residential area in Cambridge which also acts as a key route between the city centre, the A14 and A10, as well as the nearby villages of Milton and Waterbeach.

As a key arterial route, Milton Road has been identified as vital to the local economy. However, growing levels of peak-time traffic congestion threaten the continued economic growth of the local area. With the population of Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire expected to grow by around 28% over the next 15 years, improvements to Milton Road will need to be made now, to accommodate the increasing number of journeys in the future. 

The Milton Road project aims to improve public transport, cycle and walking infrastructure to make these sustainable travel options a more attractive alternative to the car, and to encourage the continued economic growth of Greater Cambridge, without harming existing communities, and the environment. 

We want to improve journeys for those who live, work and commute down Milton Road whilst maintaining it as well as maintain Milton Road as a green gateway to the city.

Next steps

Once the consultation closes, all of the responses will be collated by Cambridgeshire County Council's Research Team and the Consultation Report will be published early 2019. 

Following this, and taking all of the supporting information and consultation responses into account, the Project Team will prepare a final preliminary design which the Greater Cambridge Partnership's Executive Board will consider.
