Mill Road Bridge in Cambridge has been temporarily closed to all vehicles except buses, cycles and pedestrians. The County Council put this measure in place to help people social distance and enable active travel by bike or on foot.
Whilst the whole of Mill Road remains accessible to motorists, these trial measures mean they can no longer travel over the bridge. Those who cross the bridge despite warnings will incur a fine. Over 20 signs have been installed along Mill Road and on nearby streets to warn drivers about the new road layout.
Separate to the trial bridge road closure, white and red ‘build outs’ along Mill Road have been installed. These extend the footway and help people social distance when walking along the high street. Consultation on the bridge closure will run from Monday Nov 9th until Thursday 24 December 2020.The survey is at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/mill-road-consultation.
