ST IVES residents are to get their say on measures to improve transport in the market town.
Questionnaires will be sent to residents in January for people to have their say about the proposals in a new draft transport strategy produced by Cambridgeshire County Council, Huntingdonshire District Council, South Cambridgeshire District Council and St Ives Town Council. People will also be able to have their say online.
The proposals address a wide range of concerns already raised by local people including congestion, better facilities for pedestrians, cyclists, public transport and measures to improve road safety, the county council said.
Exhibitions of the plans will be held on Friday, Saturday and Monday, January 20, 21 and 23, between 10am and 4pm at the Golden Lion Hotel, Market Hill, St Ives. Council officers will be on hand to discuss the strategy.
