Cambridge Cycling Campaign

Cambridge Cycling Campaign was formed in 1995 to provide a voice for cyclists in Cambridge and the surrounding villages. We aren't a cycling club, but an organisation of volunteers campaigning for the rights of cyclists and promoting cycling in and around Cambridge. We lobby for better and more convenient conditions for cycling, safer roads, and more people on bikes. It is now a charity, registered number 1138098. More information at https://www.camcycle.org.uk

  • Two-way driving in Sedgwick Street for 54m requested by Tesco

    Martin Lucas-Smith // 1 thread

    Tesco appear to have asked the County Council to enable them to drive lorries into their store from Sedgwick Street (despite moving in in 2009 knowing that this was prohibited).

    The proposal would make Sedgwick Street two-way for driving for 57m, then one-way for driving after that.

  • Mill Road (transporation) Survey (for edit)

    Created by Aldo // 1 thread

    In the coming weeks we, UoC Students from the Cambridge Hub, are going to do a survey on Mill Road in order to find out how people get to Mill Road and how they interact with it. The survey will be compared with the survey done last November in order to build momentum for the car-free Mill Road project.

    We would love your input. Please give suggestions below.

    For the survey, click on the link below.

  • 21-month closure of cycle path from Cambridge North to Milton Road

    At the end of this blog post, it's reported that the segregated cycle path from Cambridge North station to the north of the Business Park will be closed to cyclists from March 2019 to December 2020 (a period of 21 months), for utility works relating to development on the Cambridge North site. Cyclists are to be diverted to the south side path (along the busway); pedestrian access on the north side will apparently be maintained.

    In particular, this appears to prevent cyclist use of the recently opened gate at the south end of the Business Park for the duration of the works (unless perhaps one pushes one's cycle). Getting from or through Cambridge North to the Science Park will be less convenient, too.

    Full text from Camcycle blog post. (Robin Heydon tells me this information originally came from Brookgate.)

    Development at Cambridge North

    Early works have begun on the further development around Cambridge North, where new offices and a hotel will be built. Within the next couple of months, a major cyclist diversion will be put in place which reroutes cyclists accessing the station via the segregated path along Cowley Road. This will be closed to allow utility works from Milton Road down to the station. Cyclists will be redirected along the Busway cycleway from Milton Road. There will continue to be road access for cyclists to the industrial and residential units off Cowley Road (including the Camcycle office), but not beyond this point. Note that there will be a signifidant increase in construction traffic along Cowley Road.

  • Pavement missing on Cowley Road between Cambridge Commercial Park and NR land

    Created by Shaun McDonald // 1 thread

    There is no pavement at the end of Cowley Road between Cambridge Commercial Park and the Network Rail land. Historically before Cambridge North station opened no pavement would have been required along this section of the road. Now that Cambridge North is open this is a popular route.

    The lack of pavement here has meant one local business has setup a taxi service (other members of staff driving their cars) for the very short walk between the commercial park and Cambridge North station. This is resulting in more vehicular traffic (just this one business is around 2-8 extra car journeys per weekday) between Cowley Road and Cambridge North station making it less safe for people cycling.
