  • Upgraded cycleway from Cambourne to Cambridge, Cambridgeshire

    Created by Alan Everitt // 1 thread

    Hardwick is seen as a commuter village for Cambridge but currently there are no cycle paths at all within the village, other than a 2 mile long on-road advisory shared with 40 mph traffic. There is also no cycle path north-south through the village - just over a mile. This is a village of around 1250 homes currently being extended to around 1500 but with little attention being paid to cycling yet.

    In the S.106 Agreement for West Cambourne construction (2350 homes), SCDC Planning Reference S/2903/14/OL, Cambridge County Council have included an upgraded Cycle and footpath from West Cambourne to Cambridge passing through Hardwick. This can be seen in the S.106 Agreement Schedule 13 and is shown as Fully Funded in the current Cambridge County Council Transport Investment Plan, Scheme number 123.

    Before construction of this goes ahead, will there be consultation with villages and residents along the route and do we have any indication of when this might commence? I note there should be plans available but these plans should be readable, clarified and modified with input from the villages on the route including Hardwick.

    In the original plan submitted it seems the cycle paths proposed pass directly in front of 150 or so businesses and residential properties accesses and driveways which would seem to be entirely inappropriate for serious cycle-to-work opportunities. 

    This route appears to be independent from the Cambridge County Council "Greenways" initiative which also did not engage with Hardwick either

  • Cycle path though Clay Farm Community Garden

    Created by Dave Fox // 1 thread

    There is to be a new cycle path running W-E through the developing community garden in the Clay Farm development in Cambridge's southern fringe. It follows the line of a gas main (purple line on the plan).

    The garden is already split by Hobson Avenue running N-S. The cycle route crosses that road and there are four 15metre wide gaps in the hedge where the cycle route enters/exits the garden.

    The cycle path will probably have a chicane design at each end to slow cyclists at junction points. Here are some questions about the cycle path:

    * How can the design ensure safety at the Hobson Road crossing?
    * What should the four entrances/exits be like?
    * What garden features should there be along the cycle path’s route?
    * Should there be lighting?
    * What other questions occur to you about the cycle path, and what answers can you offer?

    This is part of a consultation intended for local residents, however I hope that someone here might be able to comment especially on the safety of the junctions where the cycle route crosses Hobson Avenue.

    (The cycle route also crosses the busway at the Foster Road stop, though I guess that bit is beyond the scope of the community garden's consultation.)

    Feel free to ask me here for clarifications, and please comment at the community garden's page below.
