The cut-through from Eastfield to Warren Road, after removal of the short-lived chicane barrier of #182428. (A bollard still prevents cars from using the cut-through.) See #182839 for the view from the other side.

The new mural in the Newmarket Road underpass on the Chisholm Trail

When I saw the supermarket car park being resurfaced, I didn't expect them to fix the shared-use path from Maris Lane - but they've done a great job (although there's still a bump on/off the road).

Ooo, exciting new cycling infrastructure in Cambridge

Blank canvas 🤣 Only for a few days, see #177055.

The newest bridge over the river Cam opened today. #ChisholmTrail #TheChisholmTrailIsOpen #ChisholmTrailCambridge Entry for ... [more]

Abbey Chesterton bridge on the Chisholm Trail. Measured by Martin’s boots (26 December 2021): footway 2.3 meters, cycleway 2.7 metres.

At last this bridge over the brook on Coldhams Common appears to be complete.

Constructing the replacement bridge for the Chisholm Trail on Coldhams Common.

Improved fencing around the cattle grid.

Newly laid asphalt at the Chisholm Trail bridge, Chesterton.

Much easier access to the towpath at Fen Road than previously.

This section of the Chisholm Trail is built on a bed of gravel that is designed both to protect tree roots and the path from the roots causing ridges on the path. Only along a short stretch where trees grow on this side of the brook.

The Chisholm Trail underpass at Newmarket Road.

Crossing to the cycle route to Mallets Road - unlike the new crossings at the Robin Hood junction, this is a clear single-stage cycle crossing.

Nice - a link so cyclists can cross one side of Madingley Road then use the lights to cross the other side.

The Coton M11 bridge has finally reopened, and the Coton Path seems to have been rebuilt the whole way from the bridge to Coton.

Poor stretch of path between the West Cambridge site and the Coton M11 bridge

Coton path

Bollards are the only sure way to stop this being overrun by motor vehicles. Fixes problem reported in #87878.

The hedge along here has been well trimmed back.

Cycleway near busway in Trumpington.

Tree blockage of #160701 removed

View from Babraham Road towards the Nine Wells.

The Abbey-Chesterton Bridge on Ditton Meadows.

The elegance of the Abbey Chesterton Bridge on the Chisholm Trail emerges from the engineering works.

The Abbey Chesterton Bridge in situ at last. There were lots of people walking around today on Stourbridge Common and Ditton Meadows - exercising in the mild November air and many of them had come to look at the bridge and the cranes.

The newly sited Abbey-Chesterton Bridge - alongside the railway bridge. The photo also shows the set of points, a.k.a.turnout, which southbound (towards the camera) trains use to switch tracks after leaving Cambridge North station.


The Abbey-Chesterton bridge in-situ.

Night lighting near the observatory.

Colourful lighting at Riverside Bridge.

A helpful extra bit of tarmac where this cycleway passes near the supermarket deliveries entrance.

A very useful triangle of tarmac makes this route a little bit more pleasant.

New stronger cattle grid replacing one that was quite bent.

Jetty incomplete - do not enter!

Hills Road cycleway resurfaced 🤗

Histon Road Recreation Ground has been improved for cycling - the route to the right is even lit.

Traffic filtering, with a No Parking sign added.

Traffic filter, Dudley Road

Good permeability, Trumpington Park

Good practice during the Covid-19 lockdown - a path has been opened up west of Skaters' Meadow to bypass the very narrow and busy cycle path.

Resurfaced path on useful link between Chaucer and Latham roads.

Resurfaced path off Chaucer Road.

Obstructions removed at long last, see #113875.

Barrier free at last! This is the first time I've seen the horrendous barriers that were there see #4025 gone at last!

Waiting at the Lyndewode Road / Tenison Road crossing.

Two cattle grids are better than one.

A very Cambridge image, on an infrastructure tour visiting the site of the construction of the Abbey-Chesterton bridge forming a key link on the Chisholm Trail.

A tiny bit of good news - the link between Ninewells and Greenlands has finally been tarmacked @camcycle Ed: the undercoat was in place for at least a year:

Cyclists burn off the frost early on the Riverside bridge, Cambridge.

Pedestrians squeeze through the bollards restricted by pram arms on the left, and a much improved cycle route on the right.

Much improved route from the end of Leys Avenue into the Arbury Court area.

Improved shared use path compared to 16 years previously: #4117.

Shared-use route to Reality Checkpoint resurfaced with useful geotextile buffer strips alongside.

Just opened - the remaining part of the GCP Cross City Cycling Scheme for Arbury Road that was planned a few years ago.

New partially complete Green End Road cycleway already getting some use. Nice.

New shared use cycleway on Fulbourn Road. Width measured here: 4.0m

Semi segregated cycleway on Fulbourn Road. Width: 1.9m, or 2m if the kerbs are included.

Nice looking cycleway here - but follow it and it gives up near the junction ahead. Also that sign on the left has the transport modes the wrong way round (but at least it is off the path).

Estimating the width of this shared use cycleway using the iPhone measure app. Width shown is 2.83m but add about 76cm for the manhole cover. Width of shared use cycleway: 3.5m

Tarmac added seamlessly against the kerb during the temporary closure of half of the path due to a new development

After being closed for several weeks, this is now a properly surfaced and drained route

Cyclists can turn left without waiting for the lights

After being closed for several weeks, this is now a properly surfaced and drained route (no change to the bridge, though).

Coldham’s Common

Hybrid cycle track, plus a contraflow to get to the hospital

Parker's Piece and its lamp posts. Nice path although too narrow.
