In Traffic, Roads & Pathways

The Parish Council meeting of the 03rd October 2017. It was agreed, to request the County Council implement a 20mph speed limit in Cambourne, to provide a safe environment for the residents and improved routes for schools.

The Parish Council took the decision after considering responses from the Parish Plan and the previous Consultation held in the village. There was a suggestion that certain roads where kept at 30mph, but after careful consideration it was not appropriate as they were where schools were and play areas or Sports pavilions.

The Parish Council also agreed to apply to the County Council for joint funding of 3 Zebra crossings at the junction of Swansley Lane and School lane, Priory Walk and Monkfield Lane and Eastgate and Lancaster Gate. The 3 sites were identified after the Parish Council Commissioned traffic counts at 8 locations in Cambourne. They were the only sites that met the County Council’s criteria for provision of Zebra crossings.
