Cycleway almost done 

The Grey Street cul-de-sac and cycleway with new solar-powered lamp posts. 

Cambridge’s first two-way cycleway on Hamilton Road is nearly complete.

The two cul-de-sacs at Hall and Grey Streets are now finished, cycleway lanes clearly marked, water taps installed and a new bus bay completed.

Vigilant residents would have seen solar-powered lamp posts go up which will light the way for pedestrians and cycleway users.

The Paynes Park section in front of Cambridge Resthaven is now open and preparation underway for the section to connect cyclists and pedestrians with new facilities adjoining Kelly Road Motel.

It is the first in a network of cycleways in Cambridge and across the district to make it safer and easier for residents to get to key destinations using alternative modes of transport.
