    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    This fund is to show public support for a permanent sustainable cycle and pedestrian link connecting Royston with Melbourn and onwards to Cambridge.

    Since the 2013 launch of the A10 Corridor Cycling Campaign, the creation of a safe cycle AND pedestrian link connecting Royston with Melbourn has been a major priority. But while funding to connect Melbourn to Cambridge has been found, and most of that route now built, the cross-county border has yet to be addressed.

    This relatively short stretch of road has a potholed narrow footpath along a narrow, high speed road, and multiple dangerous crossing points.

    The aim is to have a safe path for walking, running, cycling, and disability access that people can use socially, to get to work, or to school. Currently, in the absence of a safe off-road link, many of those who would prefer to travel by bicycle, on foot, or by mobility scooter, are instead forced to drive. Traffic congestion and a lack of workplace parking has become a big problem in the expanding areas of Royston and Melbourn.

    The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough LEP has formally indicated its support for our proposed and fully-costed Royston-Melbourn link, based on a collaborative funding approach. The A10 Corridor Cycling Campaign wishes to consolidate and develop on that already existing public-private partnership.

      The A10, A505, and the junction roundabout are getting busier and busier. The path on the A10 between Royston and Melbourn is really deteriorating. For safety's sake we need a dedicated path so much.

      I frequently run/cycle from Melbourn to Royston, crossing the A505 is extremely difficult. We can't cycle as a family to swimming and judo at the leisure centre. A bridge would be VERY welcome!

      I currently cycle along the A1198 and get on the cycle path to Cambridge at Shepreth to avoid the A10. I very much support a link connecting Melbourn and Royston, would make my journey MUCH safer!
