To protect the area from increased congestion, there must be a focus on encouraging people to use sustainable modes of transport. Make the routes safe and easy to use for cyclists and pedestrians, and this will better the journey time and experience for everyone.

Respondent: Mr Tom McKeown

Representation Summary:

A second vehicular access is a reasonable compromise. However, it must consider active modes at a design stage; efficient access, priority over side roads, dedicated space. Also there should be no through routes between the two vehicular accesses, to prevent rat running and create a safe attractive space for active modes. Filtered permeability and bus gates should be used to enable active and public modes full access to the site.

Cowley Road access would also be greatly improved by opening up the old Network Rail access track as a high quality off road cycle and walking connection.

Respondent: Brookgate

Representation Summary:

Brookgate object toproposal to restrict private car movements on Cowley Road. A Quality Bus corridor is being constructed south of Cowley Road as an extension of the existing CGB. This route should be open to all public transport vehicles both guided and un-guided. The CGB route is sufficient to provide reliable and fast public transport services to the new railway station and the AAP area. High quality cycle facilities can be provided parallel to the existing Cowley Road by utilising the disused Network Rail site access road, without needing to restrict vehicle movements on Cowley Road.

Representation Summary:

There is no indication of how this will be funded as it will require to be implemented before a large quantum of development takes place. It would prioritise sustainable modes of transport which would be suitable if the AAP site was to host a large amount of residential and office uses, it is considered doubtful that those uses can be delivered.

Respondent: Mr David Collier

Representation Summary:

Support the focus on walking, cycling and public transport. But to make a route truly attractive for these users, pedestrians should not be forced to share pavement with cyclists and cyclists should have a route separate from the road. There is no reason why this cannot be achieved and it is unclear whether even option B would do this, as Cowley Road will still be narrow even if most of its traffic is removed. What is really needed is a new route away from the road.

Representation Summary:

Option B is supported above Option A, but less than Option C. There will be an increasing number of users and a wide variety of modes of transport using this area, ranging from pedestrian and cyclists going to the offices and the station, to HCVs accessing the B2, B8 and Sui Generis areas. It is important to have separation between HCVs and other users, not least to ensure the safety of those moving in and through the area.

It is important to have separation between HCVs and other users, not least to ensure the safety of those moving in and through the area, but also to minimise the impact of such traffic on other land uses through the minimisation of noise and vibration of vehicles. There may also be occasion for example where the coated roadstone plant located at the Lafarge Tarmac railhead needs to be active out of hours i.e. when providing material for road repair and resurfacing schemes being undertaken at night, a dedicated HCV access would enable safe access and reduce the potential for amenity issues to arise.

Representation Summary:

Would segregate station and cycling/walking traffic from main employment route. However, the absence of any information about traffic generation means it is impossible to assess the impacts of this option. Increased traffic, including heavy goods traffic will impact upon existing businesses and may prejudice safety of pedestrians and cyclists.

Representation Summary:

The improvements to Cowley Road are supported but sustainable modes of travel along the Milton Road corridor must be catered for to allow reliable journey times from new and existing communities. Any new junction arrangements with Milton Road must be shown to deliver benefits to all but with reference to the hierarchy of users.

Respondent: Anglian Water Services Ltd

Representation Summary:

We understand the importance of seeking to separate the heavy industrial traffic from pedestrians and cyclists and have no objection in principle to the creation of a new access road along the southern boundary of the WRC. However, the detail of land ownership will need to be explored as some of this appears to be on land in the ownership of Anglian Water.
