Sustainable travel

Cambridge North is a highly accessible site with strong connections to local public transport, including Cambridge North Railway Station, Guided Busway, Chisholm Trail, Milton Park and Ride and the planned Waterbeach Greenway and St Ives Greenway.

Our sustainable transport strategy will build on this and provide:

  • 1,500+ weatherproof, cycle parking spaces, including provision for non-standard cycles.
  • The expansion of existing cycle routes through the site with a new route along Swale Street.
  • A network of wide footways and pedestrian spaces throughout the development, with connections to existing pedestrian routes to the north, south and west.
  • A Mobility Hub next to the Novotel Hotel to incorporate existing and future car parking, including Network Rail car parking.
  • A balanced level of car parking to discourage car use, with easy access to car clubs for those who need a vehicle.
  • Electric Vehicle charging points provided within the Mobility Hub.
  • Disabled parking bays near each of the buildings to help Blue Badge holders park closer to their destination.


The Councils’ emerging car parking budget for the North East Cambridge Area Action Plan area allows a maximum of 873 spaces for all phases of the Cambridge North development. We are also providing 628 spaces for Cambridge North Railway Station. Disabled parking will be located near each building, as well as provision for delivery vehicles.

Highways Planning

The Highways Authority has taken a coordinated approach across the wider North East Cambridge area to establish suitable levels of peak hour vehicle trips that each development site can generate to maintain the ‘status quo’ on Milton Road. The Cambridge North development will operate within these levels, and this is supported by the site’s excellent public transport connectivity, through carefully managed car parking provision, high-quality cycle parking, and occupier travel planning.
