News in Brief: Safe route to school for new Waterbeach town

This article was published in 2020, in Magazine 146.

We were delighted to see the latest designs for Waterbeach New Town in December that showed that its first primary school would have no road access to the front, providing a safe route for those on foot or by cycle. This was a change to the original plans, influenced by the work of our volunteers and those of Waterbeach Cycling Campaign. Thanks to everyone who had a hand in this change; we’ll continue to keep up the pressure on this and other new developments to ensure they prioritise sustainable transport and liveable streets.
