Fortnight left to have your say in Whittlesford Parkway station consultation


09-07-2019

There are two weeks left for people to have a say on proposals to improve access to and from Whittlesford Parkway station

The Greater Cambridge Partnership has put forward more than 30 possible improvements which aim to make it easier to access the station on foot, by bicycle, or by public transport.

The six-week consultation, which opened on 10 June, is asking for views on plans such as better car and cycle parking, introducing a bus turning circle and changes to surrounding roads to make it easier to get in and out of the station.

Cllr Aidan Van de Weyer, Chair of the Greater Cambridge Partnership, said: “We want to encourage people to travel more sustainably wherever possible and these proposed improvements to access Whittlesford Parkway station could help people do just that.

“We have already seen good levels of engagement from members of the public, people living in Whittlesford and staff at business parks and I’d like to thank people for their input so far.

“There’s still time for people to tell us what they think of the proposals so I urge anyone who hasn’t already done so to share their views with us before the consultation closes on Monday 22 July.”

During the consultation we have heard the views of more than 150 people at drop-in sessions at Whittlesford Parkway station, business parks and a public exhibition.

The GCP has also spoken at meetings of Whittlesford Parish Council and the local rail user group.
