    Would somebody please tell me what is to be done about other non-major roads in and around Cambridge. There is no point in closing six major roads at peak hours if minor roads are left open. What plans are there in place for those who live in the city and want to get out of it at peak hours. Before I am prepared to sign any petition I need to know a lot more about what is being proposed. Also I would like to know what is being proposed to make parking and riding more attractive and affordable.

    I should like to sign the petition, I am Mrs Emms, at this address. I am registered Disabled. The proposed closures would mean I could not access my Doctors Surgery, from East Road or Coldhams Lane, or get to Hospital appointments from this side of the City, as I need close access with Motability Car to these vital places. It assumes everyone can Walk to bus stops both ends of journeys, or ride bicycles. Yet again the Disabled and Carers have a more difficult time figuring out how to get to appointments, often scheduled early for operations. When you are ill and disabled you cannot afford taxis!. This scheme is not well thought out. People will be trapped at home. Its fine for younger fit people who are able to cycle and walk. The buses dont stop conveniently outside surgery, and you cannot get a mobility scooter on a bus! Doctors never home visit now, so this will seriously effect people’s health. Think about snowy days…………….. It may be sounding good when the sun shines, but from experience it is really a nightmare accessing medical help wnen you need to. Im sure many older people and the Disabled will find this yet another hurdle they can well do without.

    How am I meant to get to the hospital or train station from my house in Newnham if they close these roads? We have a bus service only once an hour into the city centre

    Philippa there are no alternatives offered apart from cycling and walk. They made a busaway spending hundreds of millions for something that is completely inefficient. In all the world you have trains or high capacity tramways that in few minutes bring you to the centre. Here you spent 40 minutes to go from trumpington to the center with n.7 citibus. Instead of being conservatives with your clean air and safe streets by living like in 19th century, learn from Europe cities if you don’t know how to get your city into modern times!

    This is a nonsense campaign – that clearly doesn’t take into account the clear and genuine attempt of the Cambridge City Council to change people’s currently unsustainable transportation and travel behaviour. radical change is required to change the situation and people need to get onto their bikes or onto a bus so that life in the city is safer, cleaner and more tolerable. This proposed objection provides no alternatives and is therefore a false argument. Most of the objections are from people who simply refuse to access the alternatives offered.

    Please keep me posted. I’ve signed the petition and e-mailed the city deal website and put it on facebook. Why don’t they take an underground system seriously?
