Cambridge South West Park & Ride

Complete our survey here, and have your say on:

  • Extra Park & Ride spaces to the south west of Cambridge

  • Bus priority measures into the city centre


Background

The existing Park & Ride site on Trumpington Road is the busiest in the city due to its closeness to the M11, the city centre and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. The site is often full by midday with motorists having to find alternative ways to complete their journeys.

To address this issue in the short term, we will be adding 274 car spaces and five bus spaces, which will increase car parking from 1,340 to 1,614 spaces. Works are schedule to start shortly and these extra spaces will be available by summer 2019.

The small increase in the number of spaces at the Trumpington site will address the current challenge, but future development will place greater demand on our already congested roads. With new jobs and services at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, such as the Royal Papworth Hospital and AstraZeneca, more and more people will want to travel to access opportunities. We want to cater for this future demand sustainably, by significantly increasing the supply of Park & Ride car parking spaces close to Junction 11 of the M11 to provide people with an alternative to driving into the Biomedical Campus and the city centre.



Park & Ride options

We are seeking your feedback on two options for increasing Park & Ride spaces:

  • Option 1: Increase the number of spaces at Trumpington Park & Ride site from 1,614 to 2,560 (creating an additional 946 spaces) by creating a multi-storey car park


  • Option 2: Maintain the Park & Ride site at Trumpington and provide a new Park & Ride site with 2,260 spaces to the west of Junction 11 of the M11, with dedicated access from the M11.


For further information on the two options, including benefits, costs, environmental impact and more, please download a copy of the consultation brochure.


Access arrangements

Both Options 1 and 2 could include changes to the road network to allow dedicated access for private vehicles to get to the sites.

For further information on access arrangements, please download a copy of the consultation brochure.


Trumpington Road improvements

We know that increasing Park & Ride capacity is only part of the solution to address congestion both now and in the future. We also need to provide fast, frequent and reliable public transport for Park & Ride users to complete their onward journey.

Currently buses travelling from the Trumpington Park & Ride site are affected by congestion on Hauxton Road, Trumpington Road and Trumpington High Street. This unreliability means that buses are timetabled to account for possible delays, making journeys from the Park & Ride longer than necessary even if there is little traffic.

To address this, we are considering a package of measures to improve bus journey times between Trumpington Park & Ride site and the city centre.

These measures could include new bus lanes and priority for buses at traffic signals. Changes to parking arrangements could also improve bus journey times, so that buses do not need to weave between parked cars.
