March Transport Study quick win schemes - Hundred Road


In 2019, the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA) procured the March Transport Study. The study aims to understand the transport issues faced by residents in March. As part of the March Transport Study, we have developed a number of quick win schemes. One of these is to introduce traffic calming measures along Hundred Road in March.

Due to the complexities of this area and the ability to accommodate suitable proposed interventions, it has taken some time to get to this stage. Before we could put forward the this traffic calming measure, we had to consider:

  • Entrances and exits to properties
  • Existing lighting
  • Distances between interventions

The overview document shows the proposed traffic calming measure on Hundred Road outside house number 12. We propose installing a flow restriction island to reduce traffic speed and volume, making most road users local residents. A transport model identified this site and intervention to have the greatest impact.

We must consider any potential adverse impact on residents along Hundred Road alongside any anticipated benefits. These could vary from:

  • Disruption during construction
  • Potential future road noise due to speed cushions
  • Some loss of street parking

We welcome comments from all local residents and businesses on the proposals.

How to comment

Public engagement runs from Friday 5 March to Monday 22 March 2021.

Please email your comments to


The CPCA is funding the March Transport Study and the quick win schemes. We are project managing the study and schemes.

What happens next

We will analyse and review your comments and responses. The outcome of the engagement and the final design recommendations will be presented to the project board and the member steering group.

Subject to this engagement process and approval at committee / board, we will amend the designs and it will move forward to detailed design with notices of intent that enable residents to object formally to any changes. We will conduct a road safety audit and then the project will proceed to the cost stage and then to construction.
