Elections

« Back to list of all 25 questions for this election

Question 11 - we asked:

Do you support our call for a third cycle park in the city centre? The Grand Arcade cycle park is now often full. If the Council wants to increase the number of people who can access the city centre for economic reasons, cycling is a clear way to do this

We asked this question only in Market.

4 of the 4 candidates (100%) who were asked this question responded as below.

Those candidate(s) which were elected are highlighted.

Edward James Anthony TURNHAM
(Conservative Party)

Yes. I also support turning some car spaces into cycle spaces, in our multi-story parks.

Brett Mark HUGHES
(Green Party)

This is, I think, top priority.

Noel KAVANAGH
(Labour Party)

Give full support for at least one more cycle park in central Cambridge and it is a good suggestion to use Post Office Terrace.
The Market Square desperately needs refurbishment. The cost would probably be too prohibitive but I think having a cycle park under Market Square should be considered.
There arealso still places around the city where more secure cycle racks can be located.
Good to see there will finally be provision for more cycle parking at the railway station but I strongly oppose any suggestion to introduce charges for parking cycles on the CB1 site.

Tim BICK
(Liberal Democrat)

I do support this. I think you are right that shortage of cycle parking is becoming a constraint for using a bike into the centre. As well, I'm still looking for smaller opportunities for on-street racks - and am pleased that we have one coming up for Sidney Street.
