Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) Milton Road Update

Meeting: 01/09/2022 - North Area Committee (Item 21)

Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) Milton Road Update


The Committee received a presentation from GCP Officers.


The Committee made the following comments in response to the report:

      i.          Communication about the project needed to be improved. Not all residents were aware which roads would be closed.

     ii.          If Stagecoach was making changes to routes, a representative should be invited to North Area Committee.


Action: Cllr Scutt to invite Stagecoach to future North Area Committee to discuss changes to bus routes and bus stops.


The GCP Officers said the following in response to Members’ questions:

      i.          Stagecoach ran bus operations. Queries regarding bus route operations from tonight’s meeting could be forwarded by GCP Officers in attendance to Stagecoach.

     ii.          Buses would operate during the construction period. If a bus stop was closed then a replacement temporary one would be put in place.

   iii.          Little congestion was expected as road closures were only expected for one week from 8 September, between 7pm and 6am.

   iv.          A diversion route was in place but would be used intermittently and limited to just necessary periods.

    v.          Resources were in place to improve communication. A public drop in centre was being considered for Milton Road. Arrangements were being made with Milestone (the project contractor).

   vi.          Undertook to liaise with Milestone about alternative bus stop locations.

 vii.          The construction period would have a traffic management plan to mitigate traffic build up.
