A border and a road in the way

by Susan van de Ven on 10 July, 2019

Earlier this week I met up with Royston County, District and Town Council colleagues at Royston Heath.

Together we represent neighbouring communities in very localized natural environment.

We discussed rights of way and safe passage over our county border and the A505. The road forms a physical barrier that has cut off ancient rights of way ever since it was built, and the Hertfordshire/Cambridgeshire county border serves as an administrative barrier to restoring connectivity.

I learned that Royston Town Council will be discussing the Melbourn Greenway scheme on 15 July, 7:30PM, Royston Town Hall. The Greenway scheme presents an unusual opportunity to restore connectivity at the A10/A505 roundabout for pedestrians, cyclists and others not travelling by car, and indeed to tackle the intensifying flow of vehicle traffic toward Cambridge. I’ve signed up to attend the meeting and to speak about the benefits of scheme and why we should be supporting it.
