What is proposed?
The county council has proposed an experimental modal filter on Rustat Road just south of Fanshawe Road. This would maintain motor vehicular access to all properties while opening the road for people walking and cycling.
Our thoughts and position
This experimental scheme would greatly improve safety on Rustat Road by cutting out ratrunning between Cherry Hinton Road and Davy Road.
Does the proposal meet DfT guidelines?
Yes, experimental modal filters are explicitly mentioned as road changes that would qualify for funding.
