Work on the upgrade of Milton Road will start on Monday 27 June. The £24m project will expand over two years to improve active travel journeys. Key work will involve:
- A ‘CYCLOPS’ junction will be installed at Milton Road and Kings Hedges Road;
- A segregated cycle lane and improved bus lanes along Milton Road; and
- Significant improvement to the roundabout at Milton Road and Elizabeth Way with segregated off roads links and signalised crossings to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
Two way traffic will be maintained for the majority of the work to minimise disruption, with the bus lanes closed to make space for the work to be carried out safely. The scheme will provide faster, safer, and more reliable bus and active travel journeys between Cambridge and Cambridge North to help cut congestion and improve air quality.
