Project update 3 August 2020

The online engagement has now closed. Thank you to everyone who took the time to share their views with us.

The responses will be analysed and will be submitted to our Joint Assembly for consideration before being submitted to our Executive Board for decision in the autumn.

Online engagement 6 July - 3 August 2020

As the delivery body for the Greater Cambridge City Deal, the Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) is investing in solutions to tackle current and future transport problems by offering better and more sustainable ways to make journeys by public transport, cycling and walking.

Investment in infrastructure is well underway to create new and improved public transport routes along four corridors identified as essential to connect growing communities to employment hubs across the city including a Cambridge Eastern Access corridor via Newmarket Road.

The Cambridge Eastern Access project is looking at access to and from the city from the east to enable people to get around more easily by public transport, cycle or on foot.

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority is planning to construct the CAM as part of its Local Transport Plan. This project, along with three other GCP public transport, cycling and walking routes around the city, could also form an integral part of the Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro (CAM).

Features being considered include:

• Segregated high quality public transport options;

• On road public transport priority options including bus lanes;

• Integration with the CAM;

• Rail Improvements

• Use of Technology to manage traffic better

• Connections for sustainable modes across and between existing commercial properties and developments as well as to, from and between new developments;

• Additional or relocated Park & Ride / interchange capacity;

• Cycle and pedestrian links including both strategic and local options as well as consideration of other forms of active travel;

• Measures to physically integrate into other City Deal proposals such as the Chisholm Trail and the Horningsea, Bottisham and Swaffhams Greenways;

• Co-ordination with GCP’s City Access project in and around the city centre, and building on the recommendations of the Greater Cambridge Citizens' Assembly, the GCP is developing measures to step-up sustainable transport connections running through Cambridge’s historic heart.

As part of this work, we want to hear your views on potential public transport, walking and cycling improvements to enable people to get around more easily.

You can share your thoughts by filling in the survey or by dropping a pin and comment on to the map.

We want to know what you think, at this early stage in the project, so that we can feed your thoughts into options that, if approved by our Executive Board, will go to public consultation later in the year.
