NATIONAL BUS PASS SCHEME
The Government's 2006 Budget statement announced a new national Concessionary Bus Travel scheme would be introduced in April 2008. The scheme will allow eligible residents (over 60s and people with certain disabilities) to use their bus pass after 9.30am until the last bus Monday to Friday and all day on weekends and bank holidays in any part of England for the first time. Everyone will need to reapply for a new bus pass. To receive your new bus pass on time, complete an application form today. Contact your District Council for more information.
You can go direct to HDC information on their web site here.

A14 Upgrade Consultation by Highways Agency more...
On 24 October 2007, the decision of the Secretary of State was announced supporting the Orange Route for the A14 improvement which has also included moving the alignment south of Wood Green, which will further mitigate impact on Godmanchester. Details can be found on the A14 Godmanchester web site.
You need to return your reply to Highways Agency on the A14 Ellington to Fen Ditton upgrade before 9 March 2007. You are urged to support the Orange route. There is now a dedicated site for Godmanchester at a14.godmanchester.net where information will be collated and links to the Highway Agency etc are provided.
Please do ensure your thoughts are taken into account with this major developent which is vital to out local economy and quality of life.
Older information below.
The CHUMMS recommendations propose a route to the south of GMC very close to the town. It will be elevated over the A1 and East Coast railway line heading in an east-south-east direction towards the A1198. It is presently planned to pass to the north of Wood Green Animal Shelters. This plan will mean that there will be a considerable increase in traffic noise in GMC as it will be carried by the prevailing south westerly winds. We agree something must be done, but sending the route further south to provide a by-pass around Papworth and link with the A428 which will be dualled from Cambourne and is planned for upgrade to St Neots, is a much better solution leading to less impact on Godmanchester and removing the conflict between commuters and long-haul road traffic.

CHUMMS Report recommends A14 route adjacent to housing on the south side of Godmanchester. Your input on the impact on quality of life is needed now.
