Cambourne to Cambridge Consultation Phase 2
Consultation on phase 2 of the project from Cambourne to Madingley Mulch, including proposals for the location of a new park-and-ride, runs to the end of March.
At the December meeting of the Executive Board of the Greater Cambridge Partnership, the board declined to endorse the interim report’s recommendation for an off-road route through Coton. It will wait until both phase 1 and phase 2 can be considered together later this year.
You can take part in the consultation here. Be sure to have your say before it closes on 31st March!
Councillors Push for Pollution Monitoring on the A10
Lib Dem District Councillors are pushing for air-quality monitoring equipment to be used adjacent to the primary school in Harston.
Councillor Tony Mason said: “We know Harston has seen a huge increase in traffic in recent years and an accompanying increase in pollution. The primary school is right on the A10 and the traffic is at its worst at just the time when children are going to school.”
Councillors have worked with South Cambridgeshire District Council’s Climate Change and Environment committee to get money for the equipment in this year’s budget. The monitors could be used across the district, but targeting hotspots around schools and busy junctions is a priority.
Councillor Ian Sollom added: “With this equipment we will be able to get a much clearer picture of when air quality is particularly bad and just how bad. That evidence will strengthen future arguments for traffic-reducing interventions along the A10.”
