MUCH of St Ives town centre is set to become a 20mph zone in a bid to improve residents' quality of life, encourage walking and cycling and reduce accidents.
And motor traffic is expected to be banned from St George's Road, linking West Street and The Waits, which will become a two-way cycle and pedestrian route.
Cambridgeshire County Council is currently consulting the public on the proposals, which are part of the market town's transport strategy.
Included in the proposed trial 20mph zone are Bridge Street, Chapel Lane, Crown Street, Market Hill, Market Lane, Market Road, Merryland, New Road, Priory Road, Ramsey Road (south of North Road), Station Road, The Broadway, The Pavement, The Quay, The Waits, Wellington Street and West Street.

The 12-month trial is expected to be approved by the Huntingdonshire traffic management committee on January 18 and come into effect in spring 2010.
The proposed changes also include installing cycle lanes in St George's Road and along West Street to link with recently-installed cycle lanes in Broad Leys and Pig Lane.
