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.

      Current pedestrian/cycle route between Royston and Melbourn is falling apart and the A505 crossing is dangerous. Lets reduce congestion and help get people active!
