Traffic Consultation, Grantchester Road

Recently (6th February 2013) we responded to the City Council's consultation on proposals for traffic calming in Grantchester Road.  The main features were

  1. a raised table at junction with the Rugby Club Access Road
  2. build-outs at the junction of Selwyn Road
  3. speed limit changes.

We supported these proposals.  In addition, although outside the remit of the consultation, we said we would support a reduced speed limit to 30 mph for the whole length of the road as far as Grantchester because the road is too twisty and narrow for cyclists to be able to ride without enduring vehicles passing too close for comfort at too high a speed.
