It’s the first half of the Chisholm Trail that will connect both Cambridge train stations with a segregated cycle route.

Planning has been granted for the first phase of the Chisholm Trail, an £8.4million cycle route through the centre of Cambridge.

It’s a project being delivered as part of the City Deal, and works in tandem with a £4.5million bridge that is being planned to span the river Cam at Ditton Meadow.

Camcycle officer Roxanne De Beaux commented: “We are pleased that councillors have recognised this vital cycling and walking route for Cambridge. The Chisholm Trail will make a difference to many Cambridge residents who are looking for safer ways to travel around the city.

“Routes like this will help those who already cycle and will encourage more people to take up cycling. I will use this route everyday and I am counting the days until it opens.”

The path that has been granted approval is 2.1km. Solar lights are also expected to be embedded into the path.
