'Milton Road City Deal plans could trigger traffic 'madness'

 A Cambridge News news article today say that 'Residents in streets off Cambridge's Milton Road fear rat-running chaos if council bosses push ahead with proposals to curb traffic nearby.

Officials are keen to give buses and bikes more priority in Milton Road as part of the City Deal transport master plan, including removing trees to enable the route to be widened.

But people living close by say hundreds of cars already flood their residential roads at peak times, and making Milton Road less car-friendly will prompt motorists to seek alternative routes'.
