The biggest overhaul of Cambridge’s roads for decades is being proposed to create a major shift away from car use and ban through trips “on many parts of the network”.

Transport bosses are exploring the dramatic shift away from car use to “improve public transport and active travel” and “reduce traffic and vehicle emissions”.

A road network hierarchy review could lead to pedestrians given priority in further parts of the city centre, with motorised access limited to certain times of the day and “to essential need”. Vehicle movements would instead be restricted to the city’s main distributor roads.
