Greater Cambridge Partnership Eastern Access Project – Consultation

The Greater Cambridge Partnership’s (GCP) purpose is to “secure Greater Cambridge’s future through multi-million pound improvements in vital infrastructure”. The GCP are now looking at the transport infrastructure network that brings visitors into Cambridge from the East.

And this project will affect anyone living or working in the area including Newmarket Road, Coldhams Lane and Mill Road.

As a result, car and van drivers, public transport users, cyclists and pedestrians will all see changes to their journeys. Find out more here:

The current consultation ends at midday on Friday 18 December 2020. Take part here:

Coldhams Lane Speeding Logs Are In

  • 92,336 vehicles were logged over 7 days, with 14,308 vehicles driving above the speed limit (= 15% of the total)
  • max speed recorded was 73 mph
  • 55 vehicles were clocked doing more than 50mph

Coldhams Lane in Romsey Town is a busy arterial route linking the many and varied pleasures of the Newmarket Road retail parks with the Cambridge inner ring road running down the eastern side of the City.

Late in 2018 a number of residents of Coldhams Lane and the adjacent streets raised concerns about speeding.  County Councillor Noel Kavanagh contacted our friends at Cambridgeshire Community Roadwatch to see whether they could help us get some data about vehicle speeds along that stretch of road.

We’re now seeking residents’ views about possible options for speed reduction measures.
