Cambridge: Cyclists Hold A10 Demo
19 May 2013, 08:10
Cyclists who regularly use the A10 in Cambridgeshire are riding along the road en-masse today, to highlight what they claim is a dangerous route.
The cyclists say very little improvement work has taken place over the years for those on two-wheels between Cambridge and Royston.
Pot-holes, narrow-paths and crossing points with fast traffic are some of the hazards campaigners would like to see addressed.
County Coucillor and Chair of the A10 Corridor Cycling Campaign Susan van de Ven told Heart: "There hasn't been any work done to improve cycling conditions for a very very long time.
There is a very rudimentary path running alongside the A10 itself between Royston and Cambridge it's considered quite dangerous - full of potholes and very very narrow.
We also have an issue with trying to cross the road at various points, the junctions are all designed for fast moving traffic, not cyclists."
Cyclists will set off from 10am from the Trumpington Park and Ride site in Cambridge and shortly after from Royston station, to rendezvous at the Phillimore Garden Centre at around 11.30 today in Melbourn (Sunday 19th May).
