Many thanks to Royston Town Council for their strong support toward this project. They join the business community and Hertfordshire County Council in pledging financial support to a collaborative funding package for a pedestrian/cyclist bridge over the A505 – to be met by a new path along the eastern side of the A10, running all the way to Melbourn. It is widely recognized that this link would be transformative for people moving about on foot, in mobility scooters and on bicycles. There is still more work to be done – please contact us if you’d like to be involved.
A Melbourn-Royston walk and cycle link would complete the overall Cambridge-Royston scheme first envisioned by the Greater Cambridge City Deal – transforming home to work commutes within this compact area characterised by employment centres, house building and traffic congestion. Royston Town Council meets this evening to consider a request to support the link. More information on our Melbourn Royston page.
