What is a Greenway?
A Greenway is a high-quality, direct and continuous route connecting Cambridgeshire Villages with the city. They represent non-motorised user routes aiming to encourage people to use their cars less and travel more sustainably, using forms of transport such as cycling, walking and where possible equestrian.
What other Greenways are there?

Why are the shared use paths 3m wide?
The recommended treatment of 3m width with 2m verge was agreed by a user group that included representatives from Camcycle, Cycling UK, the British Horse Society, the Ramblers, Sustrans and more. This is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach. In some places, 3m width is not available and in others wider is more suitable due to the volume of traffic.
We take on board all comments and suggestions from our Greenway's consultations, if greater width is suggested in specific locations we can look to potentially review the size on a case by case basis.
