  • Head-on crash highlights problem with Genome (DNA) Trail

    Created by Mark Troll // 1 thread

      A friend of mine had a head-on collision with an invisible , un-lit cyclist on the DNA trail about 2 months ago.  The end of his handlebar went through his face, breaking his jaw and many facial bones, and he also had serious damage to his hip and leg.  He was in hospital for about 2 months, and was very nearly paralyzed.  As many of you know, the trail is narrow and very dark at night, when many people are coming home from the Adenbrookes campus.  I am trying to persuade the County Council to make the path wider (there is a total of 17 feet on either side) and have it lighted with overhead lighting (solar powered ones are commercially available).  Please let your County Council person know, and also please consider signing the petition at:

    https://cambridgeshire.cmis.uk.com/ccc_live/ePetitions/tabid/115/ID/38/DNA-path-improvements-needed.aspx

    I really want to reduce the chances that others will be injured on this heavily used path

  • Dangerous Snakey Trail

    Created by DB // 1 thread

    New to the area. 

    I am cycling on the snakey trail every day, and there is a high risk that somebody falls into the Cherry Hinton Brook one day. The path and bridge is really  too narrow and many people are taking it both ways.

  • Coldhams Lane

    Created by Paula Downes // 2 threads

    The road is unloved, has very few trees, has a lot of traffic, moving fast or jammed. Air quality is poor. Cyclists cycle along the pavement very fast which is dangerous for pedestrians. The cycle lanes on the road are not safe. It is difficult for cyclists to cross the road since there are not enough crossings. A lot of people park near Coldhams Common on Saturdays. Many people have created driveways to avoid people parking in front of their houses in the parking bays. Crossing the little roads (Brampton, Vinery Road, Vinery Way) is difficult because the cars block the path as they wait to get onto Coldhams Lane and greenery prevents pedestrians from going behind those cars.

  • 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?

  • 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
