The Milton Road Alliance - Will Milton Road Set the Standard?

Following initial public consultation on the Milton Road project, City Deal set up a Local Liaison Forum (LLF) to enable local people and interest groups to give input on more detailed aspects of their 'Do-Something' design.
A series of six workshops took place last autumn, and feedback from these led to a collaboration between HPERA, MRRA and CamCycle that has resulted in an alternative design for Milton Road.
The Milton Road Alliance team published this as the 'Do-Optimum' Alternative which was subsequently adopted formally by the LLF as a resolution to be presented to the City Deal Executive Board in March 2017 - subsequently postponed to June 2017.

The team has also published a more wide-ranging paper asking the question



This sets the scene for the Assembly Meeting on 7th June and the Executive Board Meeting on 15th June.

Local Liaison Forum Resolutions Meeting

Thurs 8th Dec 2016 at Shire Hall, 6.30pm

A public meeting in the Kreis Viersen room when the Forum will have to decide its response to the officers' reports on the Milton Road workshops and will vote on resolutions to put to the City Deal Assembly and Executive Board. This will be an important opportunity for the Forum to try and influence the decisions that the Board will take in the new year on the future plans for Milton Road.

HPERA Response To Milton Rd Proposal

The Cambridge City Deal Proposal for Milton Road

The full proposal can be found on the Cambridge city deal website.

We recommend that you attend one of the Consultation Sessions before filling in the Questionnaire, which can be found on-line.

As well as the plans for Milton Road, there are similar plans for Histon Road, and the Cross City Cycle Routes, for this area which could include the closure of Mansel Way.  The consultation period for all these proposals end on 15 February 2016.  Click here for information about these.
