The Milton Road scheme is set to finish later this year after almost two years of disruption. The scheme has been ongoing since halfway through 2022, with the goal of connecting the city centre with nearby villages as well as the A10 and A14.

The Milton Road scheme, organised by the Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP), hopes to advance greener travel options and reduce pollution for Cambridge residents through improved infrastructure for walking, cycling and taking public transport.

Here at CambridgeshireLive we want to get our readers' opinion on whether the works, which cost about £24 million, will improve traffic in the local area. Overnight road closures will start in June on the road for resurfacing work. The first of the closures will be between Mitcham’s Corner and Arbury Road from Monday, June 3 between 8pm and 6am.

You can find more information and updates about the scheme on the GCP website by clicking here. In the meantime, cast your vote in our poll below and let us know whether or not you think the Milton Road scheme will improve traffic around Cambridge.
