Walking & Cycling
Walking to work and around the site can often be a smart choice. No timetables to keep to, no journey delays, no overcrowding, healthy, green, free, direct with access to services (and sunlight!) en route.
The main pedestrian access points to the Campus are from:
- Hills Road various entrances (which also links to Fendon Road and Babraham Road)
- Cambridgeshire Guided Busway path (which links to Central Cambridge Rail Station, Great Kneighton & Trumpington)
- Addenbrooke’s Road for Great Kneighton and the Shelfords
- The Genome path to Shelford
- Red Cross Lane (off Babraham Road)
- Long Road (3 access points)
Walking routes are always taken into account as part of the continued development of the site with regards to people alighting buses and people accessing the site on foot. Footpaths are located conveniently throughout the site. Some are shared with cyclists so please be aware and look out for each other.
Cambridge has some of the best provision of cycle routes and lanes in the UK – and it has very few hills. The hospital is linked to the rest of the city by a large number of designated paths and cycle lanes, many crossing fields and greenspaces. The main road routes leading to the hospital, including Hills Rd, Long Rd, Trumpington Rd and Addenbrooke’s Rd all have dedicated lanes as well as off road paths along at least some of their length.
There are attractive off-road routes direct into Campus from the Trumpington area, the Shelfords, the central rail station and the route along Hills Road is one of the best facilities in the country.
There are charging points for electric bicycles available on site in Car Park 2 (near the exit barriers). It is also possible to purchase certain safety equipment such as fluorescent jackets and lights at a discount from the registered bike shops.
