At its heart, Alconbury Weald has been designed to encourage a healthy, sustainable lifestyle by creating walkable neighbourhoods, providing an extensive network of safe, well-lit cycleways and investing in easily accessible, reliable public transport.
Careful consideration has also been given to car users with investment being made in road safety and improved traffic flows on local roads as well as increased capacity on the A14.
With Cambridge Airport and London Stansted Airport less than an hour away, Alconbury Weald isn’t just well connected locally and regionally, but also nationally and internationally.
Alconbury Weald is well connected to the local and strategic road network. £1.5 billion is being invested into the A14 and with upgrade plans for the A1, those connections are getting stronger.
