Interactive map: The 12 active travel schemes planned for Cambridge roads explained

Active travel schemes that could lead to changes to roads across Cambridge are out for consultation - and we have created an interactive map to help explain them.

Cambridgeshire County Council is seeking feedback on a host of schemes that are designed to promote cycling and walking as the first choice for shorter journeys.

Cycle lanes, road closures, dropped kerbs, narrowed roads and more are suggested for the schemes.

Some - such as the modal filter that would prevent through-traffic in Arbury Road - have proved controversial, and sparked considerable debate.

There has also been some concern that the community is not aware of all the schemes.

Our interactive map enables you to see the location of the schemes proposed and read our description of the proposals.

Images of the drawings created by the county council to explain the proposals are also available.

Outside of Cambridge, there are also plans for active travel changes in Histon, Hardwick, Dry Drayton and St Ives.

Consultation on the plans has been extended by the county council until midnight on Wednesday September 15.

You can download the original pdfs of all the proposals and respond to the consultation at https://consultcambs.uk.engagementhq.com/cats.

If you have questions about any of the proposals, you can email transport.delivery@cambridgeshire.gov.uk.

In its consultation documentation, the county council said: “Please note that this consultation aims to share the proposals identified schemes with the wider public and to gauge their support and feedback for each option. We may share your information with our consultants, our partners in this consultation and with the Council's analysis team.

“You do not have to give us any personal information. We will not publish any personal details you do give us unless specifically indicated, but we may publish our response, and include it in public reports, with personal details removed. Personal data will be held securely, in accordance with data protection legislation. We will only store it for 12 months after the consultation results have been analysed and the consultation report published.

“Please note that projects relating to initial ideas for Cambridge Historic Centre, Victoria Avenue, Grange Road and Sidgewick Avenue are being considered separately by the Greater Cambridge Partnership. If you have any questions on these proposals, please contact consultations@greatercambridge.org.uk.”

The Cambridge Independent also wants to hear what you think of the schemes. Let us know by emailing letters@iliffemedia.co.uk.
