.⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ Fabulous sight! Some of the huge cracks and dangerously uneven surfaces of the Coton Cyclepath have finally been mended. Now remove parked cars from Adams Road and make it bus free.

I’m not convinced. I almost came off after cycling over a pothole on Grange Road. I reported it. 2 days later a friend came off his bike on the same pothole. I have since heard a woman cyclist needed hospital treatment after coming off on the same pothole.

.⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ This pothole on Mill Lane is now down to the original cobbles. It was reported on 27/1/20. At what point does it become unacceptable? At what point does someone take responsibility?

I thought it was more about protecting a cycleway as well as wondering where the buses would go when they hit Grange Road. Personally I think they should have run with at the start.

GCP had three options for the final stage of the bus way. 1. A main road. 2. A disused farm track. 3. The busiest cycle route in Cambridge. Choosing number 3 was always going to be the most complicated, and life-threatening.

We are against the on street parking, want to improve cycle safety along Adams Rd and it’s 3 junctions and will soon be releasing our own design ideas. GCP wanted to run 280 buses a day along a 7.5m road which is THE busiest cycle route in Cambridge. That is the issue.

. Great photo Sandie. And the GCP only got round to counting the number of bike users at the end of Oct 2019. Prevous data was 9 years old when bike numbers were 300% lower.

Agreed Mark. But is it ethical for a public body to ask a College to lobby on its behalf? And don’t forget the GCP refused to release this document arguing it was commercially sensitive. Sensitive, yes. Commercial, no.

Why are refusing FOIs and acting as a lobby group ?

This is quite staggering appalling. There were two consultations asking for opinions. But GCP, who have a non-voting university member (who votes), ask a uni college to write in support? When does this become corruption?

The folk demonstrate their bad faith by asking Clare Hall to lobby for Adams Road to be used for the busway route

.⁦⁩ ⁦⁦⁩ ⁦⁩ Here’s the latest FOI released by Clare Hall but refused by GCP. Now we know why. GCP asking Clare Hall to write in support of Adams Road. What business does the GCP have asking that?

.⁦⁩ Interesting piece from the FT on why the car lobby has always outpunched the bike lobby because cars cost more. Is that about to change?

. They are off the approach Road to the Athletics Centre on Wilberforce Road, just as the Road turns right. They are all clearly visible from the public road. On Monday the City Council will put the notice up. They responded very fast.

When St John’s College arrive at dawn on a Saturday morning to start cutting down trees you know something’s not right. Quick thinking alerted the Council who issued emergency TPOs on a number of mature trees. This was an unlucky one. Uni Athletics Centre.
