Cambridge Northern Fringe East AAP - Issues and Options

Representation ID: 29253

Received: 09/12/2014

Respondent: Ben Cofield

Representation Summary:


Orbital bus, with new rail/river crossing to Wadloes Road
Pedestrianised existing Cowley Road, with traffic rerouted on a new road adjacent to the sewage works
Pedestrianised area around the new square (as featured on map)
Buses running until midnight with stops on the new Cowley Road (B on map)

Of course we should make this area as sustainable as possible. I propose making the area developed on the current P&R site and driving range be pedestrianised with shops and restaurants at ground level. If and when the sewage works are moved, that area need not be pedestrianised, however not only should all buses pass through the station, with a new stop towards the end of the new Cowley Road (as indicated by B on the attached map), but there should be new buses, an orbital one for example, which will allow people better options to leave their car at home. The number 4 used to be great for getting people to Grafton Centre and Newmarket Road, but now people on Milton Road have to rely on the extremely unreliable number 9 or the C. Cambridge North should have buses which stop on Milton Road and run until midnight. All buses in Cambridge should run until midnight anyway - it would benefit all traders and restaurants. The orbital route would of course depend on a new rail and river road bridge/tunnel from Wadloes Road, which is essential to support the new area. One access road will be completely insufficient. I would also like to see a river taxi, which could become a tourist feature, like the Georgina. Perhaps the Council could adopt the Georgina and run it as a taxi? Of course, cycling should be at the heart of the development, and as well as the Chisholm Trail, the existing Cowley Road needs to be pedestrianised too.

Representation Summary:

Make the area an example of what can be achieved. Cambridge is already a tech and academic hub; and in the next few years will, hopefully, become a model cycling city. Let's merge those three together and show the country what is possible. Silicon Valley-meets-Copenhagen, if you will.

Respondent: Dr Roger Sewell

Representation Summary:

Policies that attempt to force people into doing things they don't want to will both be unpopular and cause trouble - see, for example, the parking problems in Orchard Park resulting from insufficient provision of parking spaces.

Representation Summary:

The rail, bus and cycle links make this an ideal opportunity to maximise travel by train, bus and cycling instead of by car.

Representation Summary:

Modal share targets need to be ambitious but realistic and achievable. The Cambridgeshire County Council Cambridge Sub Regional Model (CSRM) should be utilised to undertake further transport modelling work for the CNFE to develop appropriate modal share targets for the CNFE. Once further modelling work has been undertaken it will be possible to identify whether tougher modal share targets can be achieved at the CNFE.

To set an unrealistic target for modal shift at a time when there is an obvious funding gap in the Councils transport infrastructure plans would not be compliant with paragraph 154 of the NPPF

Representation Summary:

It should be possible to do much better than in other areas of Cambridge. When working within the constraints of an existing road network, improvements for pedestrians and cyclists in particular are difficult to achieve. In developing a new area there is no reason to repeat those mistakes, and a much better modal share should be achieved.

Respondent: Cambridgeshire County Council

Representation Summary:

All options will require more detailed transport assessment work to understand the transport implications, across all modes, of the proposals including their inter-relationship with emerging proposals under development by the County Council as part of the City Deal programme. Although this is true of all options, this is particularly the case for those that propose higher levels of development which might require significant transport intervention to ensure that transport impacts are not severe. This applies to both the local networks (walk, cycle, bus, and highway) and also the strategic road (i.e.: Highways Agency) and rail (i.e.: Network Rail) networks.

Respondent: Mr Tom McKeown

Representation Summary:

The Campaign strongly supports Option B - Go beyond the target set for the city and make the area an exemplar scheme. We feel that this development is an ideal opportunity to have aspirational transport goals; The Guided Busway, a new rail link and the local cycle network provide excellent connections by public and active transport. Every effort should be made to minimise private motor vehicle use at this location.
