« Back to list of all 25 questions for this election

Question 19 - we asked:

Do you support enabling cyclist access from Red Cross Lane to Addenbrooke's (Robinson Way)? Currently there is a locked gate and pedestrian access only, even though this route would mean cyclists could avoid the busy Addenbrookes Hills Road roundabout.

We asked this question only in Queen Edith's.

3 of the 4 candidates (75%) who were asked this question responded as below.

Those candidate(s) which were elected are highlighted.

Richard Graham JEFFS
(Conservative Party)

Provided that residents of Red Cross Lane have been adequately consulted to ensure that they aren’t inconvenienced by any changes to their street, any proposal to provide safer cycle access to the Addenbrooke’s site should be welcomed.

Sue BIRTLES
(Labour & Co-operative)

I believe that all efforts should be made to enable cyclists to use routes which allow them to avoid busy roundabouts. The opening up of this access seems like a good solution to this problem especially since it is already open to people walking through. However I think it is important to consult with both Addenrbrookes and residents on Red Cross Lane.

Amanda Joan TAYLOR
