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.

The mouth of Cotteham Road is wide and fast. How do we get this improved? Especially in the context of the new school.
The changes themselves are not controversial. (College doing some refurbishment of property for student use.) However, for a 7 bed house, they propose only 6 bike rack spaces.

Nightingale Avenue should be a major cycle route between the biomedical campus (via Red Cross Lane) and Queen Ediths in general and places beyond. It is the natural route for many people, for example between Trumpington/Shelford/Sawston and numerous schools, Cherry Hinton/Arm etc. It is already quite well-used but could be much better with some dedicated infrastructure.

Cambridgeshire Insight have just released data from a set of 'smart' traffic sensors installed to monitor the effect of the Mill Road bridge closure: https://data.cambridgeshireinsight.org.uk/story/monitoring-impact-mill-road-bridge-closure
This data is particularly interesting because it provides classified counts of pedestrians, cyclists and various classes of motor vehicle in both directions across 15 locations in Cambridge.

The central portion of Hills Road seems to be a kind of 'forgotten' area, with nothing more than narrow mandatory cycle lanes in miserable shape, and terrible junction design for people walking and cycling.
If GCP is looking for an area that needs improvement, this is one that needs doing, and it is fairly central and high-profile.
Change of use from 8 bedroom guest house (Use C1) to 9 bedroom guest house (Use C1) and associated refurbishment works including:- installation of roof lights, replacement canopy, installation of railings and dwarf wall to front elevation and cycling parking.

I've recently moved to be the Lib Dem lead on the County Council's Highways & Infrastructure committee.
I want to start working through in detail bad and good TM examples with officers to understand whether it's specific sets of contractors that are poor, whether they aren't compliant with the current policy and/or whether I agree with our officers about whether they are.
For this I need a Cambridgeshire wide list of both good and bad, with locations - so it would be good to get some from Cambridge and other nearby Cycle Campaigns.

Gallagher Estate, master planners of Orchard Park will soon hand over the highways for adoption by the County Council.
We won't be able to fix this car centric development, but within it there are many pavement cycleways, "cyclists dismount" signs, cul-de-sac signs and others which are wrong or don't apply. There are also issues with dropped kerbs etc.
I am looking for volunteers to audit Orchard Park, making a list of corrections we require before Gallaghers hands this project over.
Outline of issues affecting Histon Rd between Gilbert Rd and Victoria Rd. This stretch is without bike lane. Car parking on one side only, from Victoria Rd to pedestrian access to Recreation Ground.
The fuller length to the north is also part of a City Deal scheme.

AstraZeneca have announced they will by 2016 move to the Biomedical Campus on the Addenbrooke's site. We need to engage with them.
Hello, I'm wondering how many other Cambridge cyclists have shared the experience I've had (about once per month now) regarding a particular elderly lady who insists that bikes are not allowed on the "footpath" adjacent to the Trumpington allotments, between Shelford Rd & the new busway in CB2. This path seems clearly demarcated as a shared pedestrian-cycle path on the cycle maps provided at the council link (below). However, it is not clearly labeled as such on the path itself, leading her to become quite angry with any cyclist who gets near her & her dog while they're out walking (and obstructing the path to underscore her point). "It's a footpath" she yells, and storms away.
So my questions are 1) am I correct in interpreting the council map (below) as permitting bikes on this path and 2) how might one go about requesting proper signage, clearly saying bikes & pedestrians are both welcome?
Thanks for any feedback, Robert
