Cambridge Northern Fringe East AAP - Issues and Options

Question 34

Representation ID: 29359

Received: 16/12/2014

Respondent: Railfuture East Anglia

Representation Summary:

Access to the new railway station at Chesterton could be significantly improved if Network Rail's private access road from Milton Road to Chesterton railway sidings running along the north side of the Business Park was made into a public footpath / cycleway.
It would be more pleasant and convenient than the proposed route for Cowley Road up to the boundary of the current sidings, allowing for entrances to be installed on the north side of Cambridge Business Park and easier access for commuters.

In answer to question 34 "Do you support or object to the proposed key transport and movement principles, and why?" the access to the new railway station at Chesterton could be significantly improved if Network Rail's private access road from Milton Road to Chesterton railway sidings running along the north side of the Business Park was made into a public footpath and cycleway for pedestrians and cyclists travelling to and from the new railway station.

This would be more pleasant and convenient than the pedestrian and cycle route currently proposed for Cowley Road up to the boundary of the current sidings, especially for the thousands of people who work on the Cambridge Science Park, the Cambridge Business Park and the St John's Innovation Centre.

It would also enable the Crown Estate to install side entrances on the North side of the Cambridge Business Park to shorten the walk between offices on the Cambridge Business Park and the new railway station and encourage travel to the Cambridge Business Park by train.
