Yaxley Cycleway

Cambridgeshire County Council has proposed a cycleway to be built in Yaxley, as per its 1999 Transport Plan.[1] The scheme's original development will be contained within Yaxley, though it is planned to expand it in two phases following the completion of the Yaxley section; phase 2 will run along Broadway to Farcet, phase 3 will run from where Daimler Avenue meets Broadway to the A15.[2]
