  • Cambridge South West Travel Hub

    Created by Roxanne (Cycling Campaign Officer) // 1 thread

    GCP project:

    Junction 11 of the M11 is a key entry point into Cambridge. With significant growth in housing and employment in the area, upgrading the existing transport infrastructure in this area is vital to reduce congestion and improve access into the city.

    Congestion impacts on current bus journey times making journeys unreliable, unattractive and longer than necessary, as well as affecting the convenience and comfort of cycling trips on the corridor.

    By expanding the existing Travel Hub in Trumpington and creating more Travel Hub provision (either by creating multi-storey parking at the Trumpington site or a new Travel Hub to the west of Junction 11), car drivers can be encouraged to complete their journeys by bus. More Travel Hub use would help the flow of traffic and make employment sites such as the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, West and North Cambridge easier to reach.

    A consultation on increasing Travel Hub spaces to the south west of Cambridge ran until 21 December 2018. Thank you to those who attended our events and responded to the consultation. We will now collate the responses and publish a report in the Spring of 2019.

    The Cambridge South West Travel Hub Project is a component of the West of Cambridge package, which includes review and development options for Travel Hub facilities, creation of new Travel Hub locations, and enhancement or upgrade of existing facilities.

  • Charging for cycle parking in multi-storey car parks

    Created by Edward Leigh // 1 thread

    We know we need thousands more cycle parking spaces in future to meet ambitions to reduce car trips into the city and cope with the huge population and employment growth that the region is already committed to in its Local Plans. There is very little highway space available in the city centre, so we need to re-purpose other spaces, such as multi-storey car parks. I want to see if we can develop a policy to put to the City Council that they could act on. We've been discussing locations for new cycle parks for years (see linked Camcycle article), so what's the hold-up?

    There is a dangerous group of cavities developing around the ironworks at the 'T junction' which cyclists have to negotiate every morning, while the new cyclepath to the SciencePark is unavailable.

  • loose surface on busway path

    Richard G // 1 thread

    There is a lot of non-slip surface, that red colour stuff, that has rubbed off and collected just on the bend as the path goes under the bridge, as you leave the P&R

    Last week, I came past just as someone was being helped back up again, after their bike slipped on the loose surface.. It feels quite treacherous as you cycle over it.

    I cant see anywhere, who to contact about removing all the loose material.

    Anyone know a good point of contact to report to?

    thanks, Richard

  • A14 Roundabout J32 Works

    Created by Joe Adam // 1 thread

    The A14 works have closed the east side pavement/cyclepath for some amount of time.

    This either forces people to cross the rode via 4 toucan crossings (and cycle or walk up a very narrow stretch) which is technically not a cycle path I believe.  Alternatively people have to cycle on road across a busy 2 lane 60mph limit roundabout.
