58734Photo #58734Temporary (but for how long?) access to the Shelford path at Addenbrookes. To the other side of the small line of cones is a live road. Utterly, abjectly, awful.

This is bad for cyclists.

Terrible for those with long bikes or trailers.

It is awful for wheelchair users

It is downright dangerous for anyone on crutches, using a walking stick or walking frame or with other walking mobility issues.

49202Photo #49202New cycle contraflow on Harvest Way. Island is set well back from the junction due to the CRT site needing access for articulated lorries- massively inappropriate traffic for such a location!

A new shelter and racsk are on order. Thanks to a timely intervention, the Cambridge Cycle Camapign's cycle parking guidance has been used in specifying this- the project engineer says that it was invaluable.Cycle parking:
