A consultation has been launched on proposals to make routes safer and more attractive for walking and cycling in Queen Edith's Way and Cherry Hinton Road, Cambridge.

Cambridgeshire County Council is asking for views on the scheme to improve footpaths and cycleways.

People can have their say by completing the online survey at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/qech by Monday, 29 June 2015.

Feedback will be used to draw up possible plans for improvements. These plans would then go to a full public consultation before being implemented.

Queen Edith's Way is an important route to Addenbrooke's and the Biomedical Campus. The growth of the campus will mean an increase in all road traffic using this route. The route is also an important one for children travelling to school. Currently there is a shared-use foot and cycleway but no on-road cycle lanes.

Cherry Hinton Road is a busy local and commuter route to the station, the city centre and Hills Road Sixth Form College. Currently there is a shared-use foot and cycleway on Cherry Hinton Road (between Hills Road and Mowbray Road) and cyclists must give way at side roads.

Local developers are contributing £3 million to cycling improvements schemes along Queen Edith's Way, Cherry Hinton Road (between Hills Road and Mowbray Road) and for the Robin Hood junction.

Councillors at the South Area Committee approved the allocation of this money to these schemes. The improvements to the Robin Hood junction will be taken forward and consulted on by the Traffic Signals team later this year.
