Views sought on Cherry Hinton Road cycling proposals
Residents are being asked to have their say on walking and cycling improvements in one area of the city.
The six-week consultation launched yesterday (May 7) and will ask for views about providing safer travel for cyclists and pedestrians on Cherry Hinton Road.
Cherry Hinton Road is a key local commuter route in Cambridge for people travelling to Cambridge train station, the city centre and locations along Hills Road.
Cambridgeshire county councillor Ian Bates said: “More than 3,000 residents either walk or cycle through this area on a daily basis, as Cambridge continues to grow, these proposed improvements will really help us to provide sustainable travel options to help keep the city moving.”
The walking and cycling improvements, which also include options for parking and bus stop layouts, have been designed to help reduce congestion in the area.
A public survey was carried out in 2015, which highlighted more than three quarters of the 1,100 respondents were in favour of there being walking and cycling improvements on Cherry Hinton Road – with only one in six people saying they felt safe cycling down this route.
Fill in the consultation online or drop in at Rock Road Library on: Tuesday, May 21 (4pm-6pm) and Wednesday, June 5 (6pm-8pm).
The consultation runs until June 19.
