Greater Cambridge Greenways

Client
Greater Cambridge Partnership

JCLA / Fulkers

The Greater Cambridge Partnership is looking to establish a high quality Greenway network of cycling routes from Local villages into Cambridge – the Greater Cambridge Greenways. The four partners: Cambridge City Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, South Cambridgeshire District Council and the University of Cambridge are the local delivery body for a City Deal with central Government investing in local infrastructure.

The design team, comprising 5th Studio, with support from JCLA (landscaping) and Fulkers (cost), has been appointed to prepare outline concept drawings for public consultation in June 2018. There are twelve Greenways planned in total, and the approach starts with a thorough understanding of the routes gained by the team cycling the routes and supplemented by our detailed knowledge of designing cycling infrastructure.

Initial concept designs have been developed concentrating on:

  1. Key locations - crossings, moments of orientation/redirection,
  2. A variety of common linear conditions through exploring a range of representative cross sections,
  3. The definition of a series of high-level landscape approaches for different sections of the broad route corridors.

More information can be found on the project's website here.
