We have reached the final phase of the project to open up restricted streets to two-way for cyclists in Cambridge.
At the meeting on 24 October 2017, the Cambridge Joint Area Committee agreed to proceed with making 14 one-way streets (listed below) two-way for cycling. Many restricted streets have already been opened up to two-way cycling over the last 10 years following a Department for Transport trial. Allowing cyclists to be exempt from no-entry restrictions, and to travel both ways on one-way streets, is a cost effective and easy way of expanding the city cycle network.
Signing and lining to highlight these changes will be undertaken as soon as possible.
The list of streets where two-way cycling is allowed includes:
- Sedgwick Street
- Catharine Street
- Thoday Street
- Ross Street (south - the northern section is already two-way for cycling)
- Hemingford Road
- Argyle Street
- Guest Road
- Emery Street/Road
- Perowne Street
- Collier Road
- Norwich Street
- Coronation Street (west of the junction with Panton Street)
- Union Road
- New Square
