Gallery: Trumpington Road Reconnaissance

Investigation into problems and potential on Trumpington Rd prior to plans for segregated cycleway.

This gallery was created on Saturday, 16th November 2013

Existing shared-use on the west-side of Trumpington Road. Could the pavement be reduced in width if it no longer needed to be shared-use? However no examples of rescinding shared use are known. It may take a long time for people to adjust, ... [more]

The land on the left is suspected to belong to the council. Could it be reduced to provide additional width at the junction?

Could this verge be reduced to create extra width? It is more-or-less level with the road at this point.

Although cyclists and pedestrians are encouraged to cross this side road here, neither can see the traffic lights for relevant motor traffic from the shared-use path, and therefore do not know when they can safely cross.

Utilities access in the verge. There are more on the other (west-side) of the road as well. Moving them would be very expensive, and they would stop the laying of foundations sufficient to support the weight of motor traffic. However, could ... [more]

Existing toucan is narrow for volume of pedestrians and cyclists using it. However, it may not be within budget of the scheme to change the islands at these lights.

This stop for 3 coaches needs to be retained in the new scheme in some location: it is used as pick-up for schools in the area going on trips, and as set-down for groups visiting the Botanic gardens. There is a 15 minute maximum wait time. ... [more]

The end of parking and start of the left-turn queuing lane. Suggestion is that at peak this is full, and would seriously affect junction capacity if removed.

This bank cannot be touched by the proposed segregated cycleway. It meets the level of Hobson's Conduits and provides seepage for it. It would be extremely expensive to reduce, and therefore cannot be used for space re-allocation.

Bus stop on Trumpington Road poses a problem for space re-allocation for proposed segregated cycleway. Timetables suggest at least 10 buses an hour.
