This is the line of the former Cambridge-Bedford railway - odd that the path just peters out here.

I only realised the other day that this route across Trumpington Meadows Country Park is the line of the former Bedford-Cambridge railway.

There was a bridge here on the Cambridge-Bedford railway - now severed by the M11 in any case.

Busway information at the Foster Road stop

A short link here would give a better route from Newnham and Grantchester to Trumpington Meadows and Waitrose

It's hard to tell whether the cycle lane markings on ths new road have worn away already or, like those on Shelford Road, been removed by the county council.

Good - cycle parking is almost the first thing to go in at the future Trumpington Meadows public square.

Cut-through to Trumpington Meadows

Future access to Trumpington Meadows.

Pleasant environment with cars out of sight.

Visitor parking - and most of these houses have a bike or two leaning against the wall inside the carport.

Sheltered parking at this new development

This seems to be two-way from the junction and cycleway sign in the middle distance, so why the bizarre attempt to make it one-way here?

Four-stage crossing of the A1309. Four stages! - cyclists could just join the motor traffic, but it's a real slap in the face for those with wheelchairs or buggies. And a bizarre No Entry on the cycleway to the right.

Another unnecessary two-stage crossing, delaying pedestrians and cyclists for the benefit of drivers.

The Hauxton-Trumpington Meadows cycle track where it leaves Cambridge Road. As yet unopened the surface has a firm base with partially loose chippings on it. This is not an ideal cycling surface.

There needs to be a right-turn for cyclists from Waitrose to Trumpington Meadows

Where's the cycle parking? Trumpington Meadows is so close to the busway, but it's a typically car-oriented development, alas.

Cyclists should continue on to the footway - the narrow road seems to be one-way in the other direction.

If you want to come from Addenbrooke's Road and follow the cycle track north to Trumpington you have to cross the Park & Ride slip road twice - bad planning?

'Summer 2011' ?? and the cycle route was meant to open before the houses.

Potential route over PBI site, avoiding M11 J11 completely. (Note: the land is private land; photo was taken during a visit to the site for which permission had been obtained.)
