Question 5 - we asked:

The A14 improvement scheme will provide a safe route to Cambridge. What improvements would you like to see within Bar Hill to enable people to access this route?

We asked this question only in Bar Hill.

2 of the 5 candidates (40%) who were asked this question responded as below.

Those candidate(s) which were elected are highlighted.

Roger HALL
(Conservative Party)

It is vital to keep cyclists off the A14 which will be a motorway in all
but name. Cycle lanes, however, will be provided along the 'local road. In
addition, cycling provision partly exists from Boxworth, through Lolworth,
Bar Hill, Dry Drayton and Madingley as far as the A428, and then from Coton
into Cambridge. The dangerous part is between Dry Drayton and Madingley,and
negotiations are taking place to create a designated cycle path alongside
this narrow road.

(Liberal Democrat)

The Highways Agency’s proposals do not include a direct link from Crafts Way to Oakington Road. Such a link would mean that many people could avoid crossing and recrossing the A14 to get to West Cambridge, for example. The County Council should prioritise such a link.
