Gallery: Cottenham Histon Cycleway completed May 2012

Images of the 2 mile Cotttenham to Histon cyclepath costing £450k to upgrade. The upgrade included: land purchase; a ditch being piped; and lamp posts moved to allow widening. Solar lighting has been installed between villages. Two slightly raised crossings have been installed to alleviate loss of priority at side roads.
