Question 6 - we asked:

Do you support the principle of a considerable improvement for cycling along the inner ring road, in the form of a Newnham to Newmarket (N2N) cycleway? In our view, 2.1m wide cycle tracks could be achieved for much of this while in many places not affecting vehicle capacity.

We asked this question:

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

Those candidate(s) which were elected are highlighted.

Eric William BARRETT-PAYTON
(Conservative Party)

Yes, as long as it can be done safely

Oliver Charles Mathew PERKINS
(Green Party)

I would need to look more fully at the proposal, but anything makes cycling easier and safer, whilst providing space for more jounrneys has to be a good thing.

Peter ROBERTS
(Labour Party)

Yes. I support reviewing this and having cycling and pedestrian priority on all roads from the inner ring road inwards.

Marcus John Gilbert STREETS
(Liberal Democrat)

Being a rugby fan, one of the few cycle journeys I do make is from Newmarket Rd to Granchester Rd. so I am well aware of the problems on this route.

The Lib Dems are committed to improving key Cycle routes in the city.
