New Bit cycleway opens

New Bit cycleway opening

The New Bit cycleway, linking Brooklands Avenue and Trumpington
Road to Newnham and Coe Fen
was opened by City Council leader Ian Nimmo-Smith and County
Councillor Tony Orgee on Friday (right). Part of NCN11, the
purpose-built cycleway replaces a narrow, bumpy footpath bringing it
up to the standard of the rest of this well-used route into town. With
double cattle grids and a separate gate for pedestrians, the
congestion at the Trumpington Road end should disappear. Part of the
CycleCambridge project, there will be more openings in the next few
weeks and months as the various plans reach fruition.
