The ‘A10 Safer Junction’s’ campaign has now had its first success with improvements starting on Monday (July 8th) at the Landbeach/Milton junction. The petition campaign was well supported with over 1,200 people signing and was directly credited with starting the consultation process for improvements.
Two schemes were consulted on. The chosen design as pictured will take 8 weeks to complete. It will create a new pedestrian and cycle crossing on the A10 junction between Milton and Landbeach
The scheme is great news for pedestrians and cyclists as it will offer quick and direct path across the junction. It increases visibility of and for pedestrians and cyclists waiting to cross.
One of the reasons we launched the campaign for action this and the Landbeach-Waterbeach junction was both have a high accident rate. Once the improvements are in place we will see if further action is needed. Last year the Conservatives put a new cycleway and footpath between Milton and Landbeach (something the local community have wanted for decades) and this is an additional welcome step. Pictured with local campaigner Sarah Smart where the footpath currently ends.
To further aid safety solar stud lighting will be laid along the edges of the whole dual use path. New street lighting will be provided near the crossing points.
This latest success follows on from securing a reduced 50mph limit along the A10 and street lights and traffic lights at the Denny End junction.
