Cambourne to Cambridge project next steps agreed

The next steps for the multi-million-pound Cambourne to Cambridge project have been set out by the Greater Cambridge Partnership’s Executive Board.

Members noted the outline business case and agreed to a fully independent review of the project at the Board meeting this month.

The findings of the review will be put before the Board in July, with a public consultation on the detailed design and environmental mitigation for the scheme to be held in 2021, subject to the findings of the audit.

C2C would provide a dedicated public transport route and first-class walking and cycling links to transform journeys between Cambourne and the city.

Greenways over the shoulder

Haslingfield Greenway route approved

A new walking and cycling route to connect Haslingfield to Cambridge has been approved - the final Greater Cambridge Greenway project to be given the greenlight by the GCP Executive Board.

The Board signed off the route for the £8million Haslingfield Greenway last week, meaning all 12 routes have now been agreed.

The Greater Cambridge Greenways is a network of 12 first-class walking, cycling and equestrian routes that will provide improved links between Cambridge and surrounding towns and villages.

Histon Road construction Nov 2020

Histon Road update

Work is continuing on the Histon Road project that will make it quicker and easier for people to get into the city on foot, bicycle and bus.

Improvements between the Victoria Road junction and Gilbert Road junctions are ongoing and the paving has been laid for the pedestrian crossing at Gilbert Close.

Early in the New Year, we will be finishing the final surfacing of footpaths around the Victoria Road/Huntington Road Junction to complete the first section of the project. 

Work on the Gilbert Road/Warwick Road junction is scheduled to begin in February.
