This 'Public footpath' is a link to the busy Busway track towards the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and the Railway Station. Why is there no sign? It does not even indicate that the path leads to a stop for the Busway.

New 'End of Cycle Way' sign added on the corner of Milton Road and Highworth Avenue, yet there is another one just a few metres on around the corner.
