The Waterbeach to Cambridge project and Cambridge Eastern Access project are two of four corridor projects that aim to provide better public transport and active travel routes, such as walking and cycling, offering better connections and alternatives to car use for growing communities to the north, south east, east and west of the city.
They are part of the Greater Cambridge Partnership’s transport programme, investing Government funding in a comprehensive package of initiatives to tackle the congestion Greater Cambridge faces now and which will enable it to grow in the future.
The four schemes form an integral part of delivery of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority’s Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro (CAM) scheme, part of a network of routes including tunnels under the city of Cambridge.
New routes will be served by modern, electric vehicles to limit air pollution and noise and complemented by travel hubs to encourage park and ride journeys and offer end-to-end space for active travel options like walking and cycling.
Waterbeach to Cambridge
Following public engagement in the autumn of 2019 and the summer of 2020 GCP has developed a number of options to improve transport to the north of Cambridge for those who live or travel in the area. These options, which include public transport, walking and cycling proposals, are at an early stage and we want to find out what people think about them.
