  • Cambridge Biomedical Campus Transport Needs Review

    Created by Sam Webster // 2 threads

    Cambridge Biomedical Campus Transport Needs Review report came out a couple of weeks ago.  Whilst some of it is good, I think the cycling stuff is poor in general:

    1. They look at cyclist safety in the surrounding area but due to the dates and area selected, they claim no fatalities.  Ignoring Steve Moir's death is insensitive at best.
    2. I didn't see any mention of NCR 11 passing through the site which suggests to me they didn't even realise
    3. A tiny bit about air pollution but the word climate doesn't even appear
    4. 'The segregated route alongside the CGB' - Do they mean segregated from buses?!
    5. 'Site observations showed the route alongside the Busway to the west of the site to be particularly well used by pedestrians and cyclists and of high quality'.  It's unsafe due to lack of separation from buses and pedestrians, too narrow for numbers and given speed differences over bridge and crosswinds.
    6. Nothing about the bus stops in mandatory cycle lanes
    7. Section 5.3.3 - peak counts/hour would be very useful
    8. 'Site visit observations suggest that cycling infrastructure near to CBC is currently performing well with the current demand' - CGB path is way over capacity at peak times.  I don't know about the other routes.

    I propose complaining about the standard of the cycling part of the report.

  • Cambridge University Transport Strategy

    Created by Roxanne (CEO) // 2 threads

    Cambridge University is working on a 30 year transport strategy for all sites including colleges. The consultants preparing the strategy are currently consulting with various stakeholders including Camcycle.

    I will set up a meeting with a few Camcycle representatives and the consultants. What ideas do we want to share and who should participate in the meeting?

    They expressed interest in our (work in progress) cycling manifesto, vision for Cambridge and design guidance.

    The Cambridge City, South Cambridgeshire, County Council Strategic Transport and Spatial Planning Group are considering a new Transport Strategy for Cambridge (TSC).

    Other transport strategies will no doubt emerge in future.
