The Highways Agency has supplied me with the outline planning documents for the A14 improvements.
There are about 50 large drawings showing the changes to existing infrastructure and the new roads that are to be built. I will make these available to anyone who is interested. They show some important details which the Right to Ride Group will address during the consultation period. One of the details that appears on these drawings is that the cycleway that was originally promised between the Dry Drayton turn and Lolworth appears to have been removed from the plans. Furthermore the provisions for cyclists at the Dry Drayton turn are unsatisfactory. There may well be other parts of the design that we should consider and possibly raise official objections. This is a huge consultation and it would be very easy to miss important details which we might be able to get changed at this stage.
There are exhibitions in Cambridge and Huntingdon as follows:
Huntingdon Racecourse Brampton, Huntingdon, PE28 4NL
Friday October 9 from 2pm to 8pm
Saturday October 10 from 10am to 8pm
Sunday October 11 from 10am to 6pm
Monday October 12 from 10am to 8pm
University Arms Hotel, Regents Street, Cambridge, CB2 1AD
Thursday October 15 - Saturday 17 October from 10am to 8pm
Sunday October 18 from 10am to 6pm
Please try to attend one of these. Please direct your comments to me or one of the Right to Ride team.
This is highly important as it will have a major affect on cycling between Cambridge and Huntingdon in the future.
I intend to attend the exhibition on Friday 16th October.
