A consultation has been launched by Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) on proposals for cycling and walking improvements on Madingley Road in Cambridge.

The consultation runs until midday on Monday 2 March 2020.

The proposals form part of GCP’s vision to create a better and greener transport network.

It aims to connect people to homes, jobs and study by encouraging people to choose greener ways to make their journeys to and from Cambridge city centre.

The project intends to reduce the number of car journeys into and out of the city via one of the key routes into Cambridge, by increasing the number of trips made by foot and by bike.

Currently this route suffers from considerable congestion, particularly at the junction with the M11, and there are some large development sites on this corridor, notably the West Cambridge development.

GCP said: “In early summer 2019 we asked local residents, workers and regular users of Madingley Road, as well as key stakeholders, to give us their views on what needs improving in order to make walking and cycling along the route more attractive.”

GCP continued: “We are now consulting on options for walking and cycling developments along Madingley Road.”
