Eddington - North West Cambridge Development, University of Cambridge

An affordable, sustainable transport strategy

A constrained local transportation network needed some new solutions

The University of Cambridge’s Eddington project is a major mixed-use development that proposes the inclusion of market housing alongside affordable accommodation for staff and post-graduate students. It will also include research and development space, a hotel, substantial open spaces, and green infrastructure. We have provided transport and movement advice for the masterplan and developed an offsite transport strategy to support the proposals.

The development’s transport strategy was aligned with the wider transport strategy for Cambridge—where we focused on developing a walking, cycling, and public transport strategy. This would also be supported with alternative travel demand management measures to reduce the impact of cars on the development.

In addition to the transport strategy, our civil and structural teams have been involved in the first phase of the development. They have provided design services for the key worker and postgraduate housing and designed external, steel-framed walkways to provide main-access routes to the new five-storey buildings. The civil team also delivered below-ground drainage design and external works design for hard standing areas.

When complete, the Eddington development will become an exciting new district for Cambridge with sustainability at its heart.
