People can have their say on plans to seek to improve bus, cycling and walking journeys along Histon Road from Monday.

A public consultation on the plans for Histon Road – which include an extended inbound bus lane, ‘floating bus stops’ and improved cycle lanes, which will be segregated from vehicles where possible – begins on May 21.

The £6million project aims to encourage more people to use alternative sustainable modes of transport in order to reduce congestion and improve air quality.

The GCP is also hosting three public events where people can talk to project officers and provide their feedback on the proposed scheme.

The events will held on the following dates:

Wednesday 30 May - St Andrew’s Centre, School Hill, Histon. 4-7pm.

Wednesday 13 June - St Augustine’s Church and Hall, Richmond Road, Cambridge. 4-7pm.

Tuesday 19 June - Chesterton Community College, Gilbert Road, Cambridge. 5-8pm.

The findings will be put before members of the Joint Assembly and Executive Board in the winter for determination.

The public consultation runs between 21 May and 2 July. People can share their views on the proposals via an online survey at www.greatercambridge.org.uk/histonroadconsultation. The Greater Cambridge Partnership has said a paper questionnaire which will be posted to about 15,500 homes in the area.
