Enforcement cameras have gone live on the bus gate location in Silver Street. A grace period has been set for the first three weeks, in which warning notice will be issued – this is to allow drivers to get used to the new layout. The warning notice period will be ending on 31 July. To find out more about bus gates click here.
This summer, travel the South and East of England with up to four kids (aged 5-15) on Southern, Southeastern, Thameslink, Great Northern and Greater Anglia routes - and pay either £1 or £2 for each of their tickets. Plus, kids under 5 travel free. Book these cheap tickets on the app or website, and either use etickets on your phone, or pick them up from the station with as little as 10 minutes before departure. The offer price depends on the train operator and applies to Off-Peak tickets - which generally means travel after about 09:30, and weekends too. When you make a valid search with children added, the app or website will add the £1 or £2 automatically. Please visit here.

Have your say by providing your comments on the interactive map.

Work is due to start on creating the UK’s first Dutch-style roundabout in September – and it’s going to be in Cambridge!It will take 29 weeks (seven months) for the work to be completed, and the roundabout layout for the Fendon Road, Queen Edith’s Way and Mowbray Road junction will be transformed to influence slower approach and departure speeds, thereby reducing the speed of motor vehicles making it safer for cyclists and pedestrians.
Cyclists will be given their own cycle path, in contrasting red surfacing, to give them equal priority with pedestrians over oncoming motorists, and pedestrians will be provided with zebra crossings on all four entry and exit roads and at crossing points over the cycle paths. More information about this project, click here.
As a consequence of project resequencing Brookgate have decided to defer the closure of the Link Road at Cambridge North Station (CNS) until the end of January 2020. This means that the temporary bus turnaround will not be formed until immediately after Christmas of this year.
The Link Road will open other than for a period of 4 weeks when they will need to close one of the lanes whilst their contractor (ESM) installs the new HV cables. This is likely to occur during the month of September following which the Link Road will be fully reopened and operational until the end of January 2020 when it will be closed.
