Please Respond to Barton Greenways TRO

Many will be aware of the road works in Comberton that are part of Comberton Greenways project. It is important that all in Barton take note of the Barton Greenways plans as many elements will be similar to those in Comberton. Now is your last chance to comment on the plans by responding to the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) PR1001. (See below for the links.) As your representatives on the Parish Council, we will also respond. The principal of making Barton safer for cyclists is sound, but the plans also need to make the village safer for pedestrians and horse riders whilst keeping traffic moving. The deadline for comments is Thursday 21st March.


Dear all,

Cambridgeshire County Council is publishing this proposal on 28th February 2024. For further details please visit our permanent traffic regulation orders page and select PR1001.  For detailed drawings and more background information please visit GCP Barton Greenway page.
