Polling interest in the Tenison Road public consultation

poll

To compliment the interactive posters placed along Tension Road, we’ve set up an online poll to gauge how many people are attending this Thursday’s Public Consolation on the proposed traffic/environmental enhancement scheme.

Make sure you’re counted either by using the interactive posters or the online poll!

(Results from the posters will be added to the online poll later this week)

Consultation on traffic and environmental scheme

On 3rd July in the afternoon and evening, Cambridgeshire County County are holding a public consultation on the Tenison Road “Traffic and Environmental Enhancement Scheme”. This will offer residents of Tenison Road and the neighbourhood a chance to see and have their say on the proposals, and hopefully make some contributions. The details from the Council’s notice are:

Plans of the proposals will be available to view on Thursday July 3rd 2014 between 2pm and 8pm at The Lounge, 49-53 King’s Church, Tenison Road, Cambridge, CB1 2DG. Council officers will be on hand to answer questions and questionnaires will be available for attendees to complete.

The full letter of notice can be downloaded here; some more details are available on the County Council’s website here; and an overview of potential changes to the road can be downloaded here.

Next meeting

We’re running our next community meeting at 6:30 on 29th January. This time we’ll be discussing traffic and movement along Tenison Road and thinking about the relevance of data. We’ll talk about the data that’s available now and the kinds of data we can collect. We’ll also be questioning the role data can play in making a difference to the way Tenison Road is used. Please do get in touch if you’d like to join us. Email info@tenisonroad.com or twitter @tenisonroad.

Traffic and movement

When we started thinking about this project we very quickly came to understand that traffic on Tenison Road is a concern. We learnt that a number of residents (as well as GTARA, the local residents association) had already begun to push Cambridge City Council to do some kind of audit and implement traffic calming measures. Being on a primary thoroughfare between the Mill Road area and the train station, Tenison Road gets plenty of traffic passing along it, and not just cars but pedestrians and cyclists.
