Oakington Rural Travel Hub Consultation

Oakington Busway stop. Bus shelters on either side of the Busway track, with a bus driving away from the shelter on the left-hand side

Rural Travel Hubs are small flexible transport interchanges at key locations in South Cambridgeshire, allowing more people to access sustainable transport networks.

We want to nurture strong and vibrant communities across Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire by connecting people and promoting greener, cleaner travel.

Rural Travel Hubs aim to reduce the levels of private car journeys between Cambridge and the surrounding villages by providing sustainable transport options and enabling connections between neighbouring villages and towns.

We are currently consulting on a pilot Rural Travel Hub – proposed for Oakington, adjacent to The Busway route and providing new links to connect the surrounding villages with public transport, cycling and walking routes.

We want your feedback on the proposals, including if you would like the pilot to go ahead and what facilities you think are required.

Have you say by completing the Rural Travel Hub survey by Monday 7 January 2019.


Potential features of a Rural Travel Hub

There are a number of features of a Rural Travel Hub:

  • Bus turning circle: the two options would enable buses to travel to the Rural Travel Hub and give enough space for them to turn around.
  • Car parking: Option 1 of the proposed designs includes car parking spaces, including disabled parking spaces for Blue Badge holders.
  • Cycle lockers: both options propose to provide secure cycle lockers, with space for additional lockers if demand outstrips supply.
  • Real Time Travel Information Displays: both options propose displays in the bus shelter to provide accurate and up-to-date information on the arrival of buses serving the Rural Travel Hub.

For further information about the potential features of a Rural Travel Hub please download a copy of the consultation brochure.


Integration with potential Greenways

There are two potential Greenways schemes that could integrate with the Rural Travel Hub: one between Station Road and the Busway and the other between Oakington and Cottenham.

For further information about integration with potential Greenways please download a copy of the consultation brochure.
