A Connected Place

Transport has been an extensive discussion point as the plans have evolved with local communities and partners. Future plans for the A10 Corridor continue to develop, and in the meantime, this first phase will also see £16m of investment in transport infrastructure.

Early investment in cycle, pedestrian and public transport connections will provide real alternatives to the car for residents, and the amount of car trips from the site will be monitored, with targeted reductions essential to enabling development to continue. Early infrastructure includes:
Image

40km of cycle connections – of which 25km will be within the development to prioritise getting about by bike easily.
Off site connections include:

A cycle bridge over the A10 at Denny End Road;

Mere Way purpose-built cycleway to the Science Park and Regional College;

Cycle improvements along the A10 to Milton, to connect to the Chisholm Trail;

Enhancement across the local villages which support safer cycling connections;

A cycle and pedestrian crossing to the Cambridge Research Park.

A public transport hub, which will include:

A Park and Ride hub by the A10 entrance connecting to the existing Milton facility and offering a bus every 10 minutes;

A shuttle service from the Hub, through Waterbeach village to the rail station, with money invested in the existing station to improve footpaths, provide a bus layby and additional cycle parking;

Public realm enhancements will also be co-designed with local villages to prevent rat-running and support safer walking and cycling through Waterbeach, Landbeach, Horningsea, Cottenham and Milton.

A number of improvements will also be made to local junctions along the A10 including:

Denny End Road;

Car Dyke Road junction;

Stretham roundabout.
