  • Trumpington busway - campaign for improvements

    Created by Heather Coleman // 1 thread

    As described in the winter 2019 Camcycle magazine there is a group working on getting some improvements to the Trumpington busway.  The magazine concentrates on the northern end of the busway but we are also seeking upgrades to the Addenbrookes spur junction and the crossing at Hobson Avenue/Lime Avenue as well as adding pedestrian footpath from the Hills Road Bridge all the way to Drury Avenue.

    The group would like to start getting this out to users of the path for input, discussion and help with campaigning.  Many Biomedical Campus commuters presumably use this path frequently, even daily.  It would be great to get some input.

  • Magrath Ave / Castle Hill permissive route

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    The permissive route between Shire Hall and Magrath Avenue has issues (not the least of which being there are steps) however it does cut through the middle of what is otherwise an overly large block between Victoria Road and Chesterton Lane. There is also some irony in the fact that it appears to be the last remnants of a way that was once a Roman Road from Castle Hill heading due north.

    Naturally, it is under threat from the sale of Shire Hall. We received the following e-mail:

    Can you help ? As you may be aware the County Council has leased the
    Shire hall and some of the surrounding buildings to a development
    company. At present the situation regarding public access to the
    permissive path that runs between the top of McGrath Avenue and Castle
    Hill  remains unclear. There is to be a public meeting sometime in
    December or early January where Suffolk County Council as arbitrator
    will take submissions.

    Some neighbours and I are collecting data on the numbers of pedestrians
    and cyclists that use the cut through during rush hours - at present the
    number of journeys made per hour range from 116 (49 cyclists) to 149 (69
    cyclists)which is just over 2 journeys per minute.

    Thus as you can see closing  this path would be a tremendous loss to the
    local community forcing many people into taking busier routes along
    Victoria Road and other major routes increasing the risk of accidents.

    We would be very  grateful for your support. There is to be a link on
    the County Council website for submissions but alternatively you can
    send statements to Jocelynne Scutt , copying in Claire Richards ( both
    County Councillors). These statements will then be  forwarded to Suffolk
    County Council in batches rather than  receiving them
    individually.Please see above for Jocelynne's and Claire's  email
    addresses.

  • Buxhall School/Greanleas cycleway

    Tom McKeown // 1 thread

    A new path is being added to the west side of the B1049 to connect the Greanleas estate to the Buxhall farm school.  It is too narrow for shared used.  Can we improve this?

  • 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.
