Cambourne to Cambridge Better Transport Project, Phase 2
The Greater Cambridge Partnership has reported the results of the consultation on phase 2 (Cambourne to Madingley Mulch roundabout).
For the Park & Ride site, Scotland Farm was still strongly favoured (63%), and a busway separated from the main carriageway was also preferred by respondents (as opposed to on-road or road-widening). These consultation results will feed into final proposals for the complete scheme, to be brought before the executive board in the autumn. See the full results here
M11 Junction 11 Park & Ride
The Greater Cambridge Partnership is progressing proposals for increasing Park & Ride capacity at junction 11 through a new site on the Hauxton side of the junction, on the north side of the A10. It’s disappointing to say the least that this is where we are. A whole series of poor decisions over many years has effectively ended with the need to outsource the car park of the Cambridge Biomedical Campus (CBC) a few miles down the road.
That said, the risk of not putting in new P&R capacity now is that the junction will lock up at peak times, making traffic even worse for the communities along the A10.
Designs involving tunnel access from the M11 to improve traffic flow along the A10 have been dropped due to the Mayor’s stipulation that new P&R capacity around Cambridge be ‘temporary’. Officers believe that access can still be designed to minimise impact on the flow of traffic – we are curious to see what that looks like, to put it mildly.
The GCP has committed to work with local communities in the detailed design phase to mitigate impact, in particular through phased delivery (to try to manage supply-induced traffic), environmental enhancements and walking and cycle links to the hub.
