Greater Cambridge Partnership asking people for their view on two options

Plans to provide additional Park & Ride spaces to the south west of Cambridge have gone out to consultation.

The Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) is asking people for their views on two options for increasing Park & Ride capacity to help to reduce congestion on the roads.

An increase of 274 spaces at Trumpington Road Park & Ride has recently been approved to help address the current challenge, but additional space is still required.

The two options being considered are to expand the existing P&R site at Trumpington by constructing a 946-space multi-storey car park – which would take the total number of spaces to 2,560 – or to construct a new 2,260-space Park & Ride site north west of the M11 at junction 11. This would bring the total number of spaces available at the existing and new sites to a combined total in the area to 3,874.

The GCP is also asking for input on how cars, bicycles and buses get to and from both sites, as well as ideas for improving bus journeys from the Park & Ride into the city centre.

The consultation was launched on Monday (November 5) and closes on December 21.
