Cherry Hinton High Street improvements
Cherry Hinton High Street has officially been reopened after major improvements were made over the last few months.
The joint County and City Council scheme included:
- widening cycle lanes
- removal of cycle chicanes and the carriageway centre line,
- decluttering the High Street and removing unnecessary signs, railings and bollards
- transforming public areas outside Rectory Terrace, the library and the Post Office with new rain water gardens, planting and trees, new benches, high quality surfacing and cycle parking.
