  • 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.

    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 cycle route

    Created by wookey // 1 thread

    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.

  • Data from new smart traffic sensors available

    Created by Jon Warbrick // 1 thread

    Cambridgeshire Insight have just released data from a set of 'smart' traffic sensors installed to monitor the effect of the 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.

  • Hills Road from Station Road to Brooklands Ave

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    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.

  • Traffic management works that are bad for cyclists and pedestrians

    Created by Cllr Ian Manning // 8 threads

    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.
