Greenway works on Horningsea Road reach halfway stage

Work to widen a path to provide better and safer journeys between Fen Ditton Primary School and Horningsea has reached the halfway stage.

The path on Horningsea Road will provide the main section of the Horningsea Greenway when it is complete.

It is one of 12 greenways being developed by the Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) to help more people walk, wheel or cycle between Cambridge and villages around it.

Cllr Elisa Meschini, chair of the GCP’s executive board, said: “By helping young families to cycle or walk more safely, this greenway will mean a little less worry for parents doing the school run by a busy road and their kids will have a bit more energy for the day ahead. I am delighted we’ve reached the half-way point already.”

The GCP’s contractor, Milestone Infrastructure, started the project in late August and is expected to finish early next year.

Works will now move to the south side of the A14 before working along the slip-road junctions and bridge. Resurfacing of the whole path will take place toward the end of the project.

When complete, the 3.5km-long Horningsea Greenway will provide a continuous walking and cycling route between Horningsea, Fen Ditton and Cambridge.
