Studying Cambridge's Transport Future
Draft Structure Plan for the period up to year 2016 proposes that 50,000 new
jobs will be created and about 42,000 new homes built in the Cambridge
sub-region. This will be accompanied by a substantial growth in travel
The already congested and under-funded transport system will be
unable to cope unless there is major investment. Cambridgeshire County Council
has estimated that £1bn needs to be spent on transport.
Cambridge Futures 2 aims to study the transport options for the
Cambridge sub-region. You can find a summary of the study results by clicking

In each scenario, the effects on the economy, social equity, environmental
quality and transport were modelled. Find out more!
