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 second Tenison Road community meeting, held on 29th January, had about 30 of us come together to talk about the traffic-related issues on Tenison Road and how we thought data might help. Continue reading
Because it’s likely to have an impact on Tenison Road, we thought it would be worth posting this PDF file (565kb) and image of the Station Square development. It’s an interim plan but it provides a reasonable idea of the planned changes to the station area around Cambridge station, Station Road and Tenison Road.Continue reading
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or twitter @tenisonroad.
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.
