2.4 ACCESS, MOVEMENT & CONNECTIVITY
Proposals to improve public transport along the A428 largely ignore the impact on and needs of local villages. Does it make sense to push ahead with building houses on such a large scale until infrastructure issues are resolved and infrastructure promised by developers is in place.
No strategic case for direct access to the A428 from the new village - in the absence of such access, traffic will flow along ST Neots Road from the new village towards Cambridge/M11. Insufficient thought given to egress from the new village for traffic joining the A1198.
Growth of the housing agglomeration between West Cambourne and Highfield Caldecote provides the rationale for a station to serve it if the northern route for the Bedford Cambridge rail link goes ahead. To best serve communities, this should be south of A428; any location north of A428 rekindles interest in 'Habourne' and encourages traffic from a wider area to rat run through local villages.
