We have been asked to share with you information about a new consultation that The Greater Cambridge Partnership have launched about Addenbrookes Roundabout. Information is as follows:

Addenbrookes roundaboutThe Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) is carrying out a public consultation to improve road user safety at the Addenbrooke’s roundabout. This consultation will close at midday on Monday 24 July.

The consultation asks for local views on plans to alter the design of the Addenbrooke’s roundabout, which links to Hills Road, Fendon Road, and the A1307. The new design is proposed to reduce the roundabout’s central island, significantly widen the pedestrian and cycleway on both sides of Fendon Road, and replace the staggered crossing on Babraham Road with a single crossing.

This will significantly improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists accessing the hospital and Cambridge Biomedical Campus as a whole.

The need to improve cycling infrastructure at the Fendon Road arm of the Addenbrooke’s roundabout was identified by Cambridgeshire County Council as a priority. Since this location falls within the GCP’s Cycling Plus A1134 scheme, the GCP aims to accelerate the delivery of this area’s design and construction plans. It is intended that the scheme will be implemented by 2024, and, on this basis, it has secured additional funding from Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA).
