Traffic lights have been installed at the cross-roads in the middle of Oakington. They should be operating by the time you read this. This difficult junction is now much easier to handle. The lights are especially important for cyclists because the northern arm of the junction leads to the road to Longstanton, closed (theoretically) to private cars.

This quiet lane around the old airfield is the only real alternative to the A14 for riding to Longstanton and Bar Hill.
