Trees have been cleared to build steps from Orchard Park to the A14 interchange at last - but no ramp, as far as I can see.

Start of reasonably wide shared-use path to the A14 interchange - but there's plenty of space to make it all wide enough.

Would it be useful to build a short link to the dead-end road on the north side of The Green?

Road closure and link to shared-use path

Private road, clearly used by local dog-walkers - no use to cyclists, but one day it could link to the Cottenham road.

Somehow most of the width of this road has been privatised with just a narrow footpath left.

Firstly this road is still two-way for cycling, and secondly I'm not convinced it's a one-way road just because of the pop-up closure at the far end - I suspect residents may still come out here.
