Consultation on proposed lighting improvements on the Driftway, Newnham

Consultation runs from 1 November 2017, 10:00am to 19 December 2017, 11:59pm

Introduction and background

Cambridge City Council through the Minor Highways Improvement Programme funding and Cambridgeshire County Council through the Local Highway Improvement Initiative funding, propose to make lighting improvements to the Driftway road.

The Driftway accesses Lammas Land public car park, and links to one of the main cycle and pedestrian commuter routes from the city centre to the west of the city, and vice versa.

The Driftway currently has no lighting, and as a result is very dark along the whole length. The lack of light makes this route potentially dangerous for users, particularly cyclists and pedestrians.

This consultation gives local residents and stakeholders an opportunity to comment on issues relating to this proposed project, and we will use your feedback to help decide on the preferred option.

Consultation information

This public consultation is to ensure we understand local needs, and lets us better understand what needs to be implemented.

The consultation will provide evidence of the need/support for the preferred option and a better idea of what is required.

Next steps

Results of this survey will inform a consultation report which will be considered by local Councillors and officers. 

The preferred option is likely to be chosen at this stage, and implementation will then be pursued following budgetary and planning considerations.
