Public transport corridors

Public transport corridors (concept illustration)

This approach would focus homes and jobs along key public transport corridors and around transport hubs, extending out from Cambridge. This could be by expanding or intensifying existing settlements, or with more new settlements.

Advantages:

  • Concentrates development on transport corridors where there are opportunities for high quality public transport.

  • Supports expansion of economic benefits outwards from Cambridge.

Challenges:

  • Requires the use of land along transport corridors, which may include locations within the Green Belt. This approach has implications for fundamentally changing the nature of the Cambridge Green Belt.

  • Weight to be given to proposed new strategic transport infrastructure, even where it is included in the plans of the transport authorities, will depend on the level of certainty over delivery and timing of that infrastructure.
