Remember – have your say on St Neots Northern Foot and Cycle Bridge consultation

This is the last chance for residents of St Neots to have their say on the bridge options before the consultation closes on Monday 7 August.

Cambridgeshire County Council launched the six week consultation in June, and has already received a number of responses from residents and businesses.

There are three possible locations as well as a fourth option which proposes how the existing road bridge in the town centre might be improved to provide more space for walking and cycling.

The new foot and cycle bridge over the Great Ouse in the north of St Neots would link the town with the area to the west of the river mirroring the southern bridge.

Cllr Ian Bates, chairman of the County Council’s Economy and Environment committee, said: “The best way to ensure we build the bridge where residents really want and like is to make sure that as many people as possible have their say. We need residents to share their views.”

The last exhibition event will be held tomorrow (Tuesday 1 August) at The Priory Centre in St Neots from 4pm until 8pm. County Council officers will be on hand to provide further information and answer any questions residents might have on the consultation.
