GCP announces consultation into Park and Ride options south west of Cambridge

The existing Trumpington Park & Ride site is already the busiest in the city and often full by midday, and with growth planned in Cambridge a need for more Park & Ride provision in the area near the M11 Junction 11 has been identified. This project is one of a number of schemes being put forward by the Greater Cambridge Partnership.

The GCP is consulting on more Park & Ride spaces south west of Cambridge and bus priority into the city centre through to Friday 21 December.

Two options for the creation of more Park & Ride spaces are being put forward:

  • Option 1 is to create a multi-storey car park on the existing Park & Ride site at Trumpington;
  • Option 2 is the creation of a new Park & Ride site, north west of M11 Junction 11.

These options are supported by a range of potential access arrangements for private vehicle traffic and public transport.

The GCP is also calling for input on how bus journeys along Hauxton Road, Trumpington High Street and Trumpington Road can be improved with additional priority for buses into the city centre.

Please note this consultation is separate to approved works to expand the current Trumpington Park & Ride site by 274 spaces and 5 bus spaces, which aims to help alleviate demand pressures on the busiest of Cambridge’s Park & Ride sites in the short term.

The GCP will be holding public exhibitions with more information at the following locations:
