  • No Entry at Clay Farm Centre

    Created by Eleanor Blair // 1 thread

    Bus gate at Clay Farm Centre is marked with a "no entry except buses" sign - this route it used by many bikes, and should probably be changed. I'd rather not go through no-entry signs, but I do at the moment as it's the only sensible route by bike from Trumpington Park Primary to Lime Avenue.

  • Access for people cycling to Milton Road Primary School

    Created by Sarah Hughes // 1 thread

    I'm concerned that the current entryway design and policy on entering the school grounds at Milton Road Primary School is dangerous for people cycling (many of whom are children). I would like to suggest an improved entryway design and policy on entering the school grounds to the school for their consideration. Is there anyone with experience in this area who could advise? Or anyone who'd like to join me in making the submission?

  • Bene't Street closed for sewer repair

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

    Bene't street will be closed for four weeks (until early/mid Feb 2020) so that Anglian Water can work to repair a collapsed sewer in Cambridge. A diversion for cars will in place. The footpath is open to people walking and pushing their cycles. The diversion for the cars means that Corn Exchange street is two-way for cars and this has implications for people cycling on the contraflow lanes.

    Sudden loss of control of bike, wheels slipping out.

    Visible residue on the road.

    Injury serious enough to go to A&E.

  • 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.
