Have Your Say on Future Bus Services

ITP have been commissioned by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority to better understand perceptions of bus services in the region in order to create a vision for future bus travel.

To inform this work we want to understand:
• How frequently people use bus services and how satisfied they are with those services,
• The factors are most important to them when considering travelling by bus;
• Levels of support for improvements to bus services in your local area.

We are collecting people’s views via an online survey.

The survey has recently been shared via the CPCA website and featured in the local press – https://cambridgeshirepeterborough-ca.gov.uk/news/public-to-have-say-on-cambridgeshire-and-peterborough-radical-bus-reform/. 

About the online survey
• The surveys launched  – Monday 4th November
The survey will be open for entries for 6 weeks, until Sunday 15th December.
• The survey can be accessed via this link – www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/FutureBus/
• We are looking for responses from people who use the bus and those that do not.
• Surveys can also be completed over the phone by calling 07377 001512 (9am – 5pm Monday to Friday).

Everyone who completes the survey will have the choice to enter a prize draw to win £100 of high street shopping vouchers.
• Respondents can indicate a willingness to be considered to attend a follow-up group discussion session.
• Any personal information we collect to facilitate the selection of discussion group participants (name, email / telephone number) will be securely stored in accordance with GDPR and will not be shared with any third parties outside of our project delivery team, which consists of ITP and Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority

A1 Crosshall Bridge Works – B645 Kimbolton Road / B1048 Crosshall Road

Highways England is undertaking necessary improvement works on the B645 Kimbolton Road / B1048 Crosshall Road bridge above the A1. Works will include the replacement of joints, kerbs, road markings, studs and improvements to the road surfacing.

These road improvements are necessary to maintain the strategic road network along the A1. These safety improvements will add benefits such as a better road surface and an improved journey for road users.

The work is planned to start on Monday 9 September for approximately 2 weeks and will require two way traffic lights as well as a 24 hour closure of B645 Kimbolton Road / B1048 Crosshall Road at Crosshall bridge, followed by overnight closures of the A1 northbound entry and southbound exit slips between 8pm and 6am on weekdays only.

Traffic Restrictions

In order to minimise the impact on local communities and road users, we will only divert traffic onto local roads when absolutely necessary. We have consulted closely with the local authority to agree the most appropriate diversion route which is highlighted on the enclosed map. Access for emergency vehicles will be allowed at all times.

The following road closures will be in place.

• Closure of the B645 Kimbolton Road / B1048 Crosshall Road at Crosshall bridge from Tuesday 10 September 6am to Friday 13 September 6am (Diagram A) • Closure of the A1 northbound entry slip on Friday 13 September between 8pm and 6am (Diagram B) • Closure of the A1 southbound exit slip from Monday 16 September to Thursday 19 September between 8pm and 6am (Diagram C)
Pedestrian and cycle access across the Crosshall bridge will be available for the duration of the works.

Due to the nature of the work being carried out, some noise and light disturbance is unavoidable. We will however attempt to keep this to a minimum. The works will be intermittent, there will be times when there are no visible works taking place. This is due to us having to wait for surface cooling before further work can take place.
Please note that these works are subject to weather conditions and dates may change. Notices onsite will provide the most up to date information. Should there be a requirement to significantly re-programme the work, a further notification will be issued.
If you have any queries about our work, or want to know more, please contact us

on 0300 123 5000 or via email at info@highwaysengland.co.uk
Alternatively you can contact GRAHAM Construction who will be carrying out the works directly via email at HEworks@graham.co.uk
