Northstowe: New plans for Phase 1

The developers have dusted off their drawing boards and submitted a new set of plans for the first phase of the Northstowe development. This is a development we intend to follow closely and campaign for excellent cycling infrastructure. We hope it will capture the full cycling spirit of Cambridge and be a role model for good cycling development. But first impressions are disappointing: these first plans propose 3m wide shared-use cycle paths (which is the minimum recommended width in LTN 02/08) and appear to have dropped one of the previously planned cycle routes. So if you are in the area, why not turn up to one of the public consultations and ask some detailed questions about the cycling facilities that are planned.

  1. Rupert - which previously planned cycle route appears to have been dropped? Thanks Andy
