Widow of Cambridge cyclist killed in accident calls for action on 'danger road'

The partner of a Cambridge cyclist who was killed following a collision at a road blackspot wants more to be done to prevent other families suffering the same heartbreak.

School caretaker Stewart Milne, 44, a father of three, died when he was involved in a collision with a car on Trumpington High Street on his way home from work last December.

An inquest into his death has been opened and adjourned, while a police investigation remains ongoing.

Almost a year on from his death, his partner Carrie-Anne Hardingham has called for action to reduce the number of incidents on what she describes as a 'danger road'.

Ms Hardingham said: "Stewart was a wonderful man and losing him and has been incredibly hard on us all. One of the most devastating aspects of his death has been realising that Trumpington High Street is an area where collisions are sadly very common. While nothing will ever bring Stewart back, we are determined to fight for serious action to be taken to reduce the numbers of incidents which occur in this area.

"No other family should have to suffer as we have."

Matthew Danish, of Cambridge campaign group Camcycle, said: "We support Carrie-Anne's call for local authorities to help protect people walking and cycling on Trumpington High Street. It is a dangerous road.

"Before any further tragic deaths occur it should immediately become a 20mph zone, while planning should be started to design safe and accessible walking and cycling infrastructure to replace the current terrible conditions."
