The Greater Cambridge Partnership, where Cambridge, South Cambs and Cambridgeshire councils work together with local businesses and academia, has passed its latest test with flying colours to unlock additional funding for transport improvements in and around the city.
Daniel Zeichner MP said: “This is positive news. A big milestone has been reached. It shows the GCP is the right body to be working on local transport improvements. Over a relatively short period of time effective structures, and trust have been built, so that projects can get off the ground. I’m delighted that we can now be sure of further investment as we face a unique opportunity to tackle Cambridge’s congestion nightmare and get more people out of cars and onto safe public transport, bikes and walking.”
