Covid-19 community update – mass vaccination walk-in event this Sunday (18 July)
A mass vaccination walk-in event is taking place this Sunday at the Hub in Cambourne. In general, vaccination take up in the district is good, but it is recognised that transport difficulties and a lack of flexible, non-appointment based walk-in events in the district can be a barrier for some people.
The venue will have both AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines available. Anyone who is 18 or over will be able to have a first or second dose (second doses are available if their first dose was eight weeks ago or more; on or before 23 May).
Venue: The Hub, High Street, Cambourne, CB23 6GW
Date: Sunday 18 July
Time: Drop in any time from 10am to 4pm.
A face mask must be worn.
Cambridgeshire County Counci, Consultation, Active Travel Schemes.
The County Council is proposing a range of changes to roads across Cambridgeshire to encourage active travel across the area. They are inviting your feedback on their initial ideas to promote cycling and walking as people’s first choice for shorter journeys. Two of their proposals have a great impact on Dry Drayton and the consultation is open for comment until midnight on 24th August 2021
In essence the first scheme involving Dry Drayton will make Madingley Road one way only for motorised vehicles (Eastbound from Dry Drayton to Madingley) and will allow cyclists to travel in both directions. The second proposal is the same as the first, but with the addition of a similar scheme along Cambridge Road Madingley, (again permitting motorised vehicles to travel Eastbound only) with cyclists able to travel in both directions.
You will find these Dry Drayton proposals in the first tranche of 21 schemes shown here.
The consultation document does not make it clear how the latest proposals will affect the promised and much needed non motorised user track along Oakington Road connecting the village to the new A1307. Nor does it say how these proposals will fit with the Cambridgeshire Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan, which is open for consultation until 27th July 2021. The proposals are in outline only and do not say anything about new speed or weight limits on the roads concerned or anything about agricultural vehicles.
