The Greater Cambridge Partnership will plant around 200 trees as part of the scheme, which aims to improve walking, cycling and bus journeys.

Cllr Elisa Meschini, chair of the GCP’s executive board, was joined by residents and contractors for the ceremony on Thursday (October 12).

New landscaped areas surrounding the Elizabeth Way roundabout will also be introduced under the GCP’s commitment to enhancing biodiversity.

Cllr Meschini (Lab, King’s Hedges) said: “People in my division have told me since the beginning how important the Milton Road project is to them – they want better walking, cycling and bus journeys so they can get to work, school and to see friends. They also told me how important trees are to them, to their wellbeing, and to their pride in the place they live and call home.

“We have designed the landscaping of the roundabout in conjunction with the community and are planting around 200 new trees to ensure Milton Road becomes a green gateway to our city. I look forward to seeing people enjoying the road when it is completed.”

The project is being built by Milestone, which delivered the GCP’s Histon Road scheme.
