Catholic Church junction: changes proposed do not go nearly far enough

The County Council are consulting on some changes to the Catholic Church junction, a major collision blackspot.

Our consultation response has now been agreed within the Campaign.

While we recognise that there have been efforts to improve this junction for cyclists, the changes proposed do not go nearly far enough. This is at a junction where improvements are desperately needed to increase safety, along with measures to encourage cycling and thus reduce congestion. While implementing the changes would be better than no change at all, the current proposals on their own are not worthy of Cambridge as a national leader in active transport, and do not comply with the County Council’s stated policy of prioritising cycling, walking and public transport.
