We are delighted that Cambs County Council has been successful in its application to fund an off road connection between Melbourn and Royston that will ensure pedestrians and cyclists can make this short journey safely. The regular flow of people over this one mile distance, whether for work, training, shopping or social reasons, has long demanded a natural route that allows people to move on their own steam. Our campaign has worked hard to promote the idea that an administrative boundary should not be neglectedand this is a great move in the right direction. We should thank all the local businesses that actively helped to support the funding bid, on the basis that this is a journey undertaken by their own employees. Thanks also to Sustrans and the Cambs County Council officers who pulled it all together.
