Plans for two-way cycling in Cambridge could take a step closer next week when the Cambridge Joint Area Committee will make a decision on where to bring in the schemes.

This is the third phase of the scheme to introduce two-way cycling in one-way streets which would open up a wider network for cyclists.

Plans for the scheme have previously been to the committee where they were given the green light, since then Traffic Regulation Orders have been advertised to allow local residents to formally comment.

Cycling Champion for Cambridgeshire County Council, Councillor Noel Kavanagh said “Two-way cycling will really help to open up a wider network of cycling routes across our city – both for residents and those commuting. There are a number of benefits, not only will it help support our commitment to reducing congestion and improving air quality but in some cases it will also mean cyclists can avoid busy junctions.”

The committee will be considering responses to the Traffic Regulation Orders for the 14 streets put forward on 24 October.  The officer recommendation is to implement all of the sites with the exception of Brookside for which specific safety concerns have been expressed.
