Histon Road is now closed southbound except for cyclists - this is the rather messy arrangement at the southern end.

I think this means that pedestrians and cyclists are sharing the same space for about ten metres - but it shouldn't be necessary to dismount.

Cyclists Please Obey Traffic Signals - motor vehicles are still turning across Histon Road

Histon Road is now closed southbound - most (but not all) of the No Entry signs have Except Cycle signs in place.

Histon Road is now closed southbound, except for cycles (although there is actually access for construction vehicles to Darwin Green to the right) - unfortunately there's no dropped kerb to reach it.

Route sign and road closure (except cycles) notice

Trees have been cleared to build steps from Orchard Park to the A14 interchange at last - but no ramp, as far as I can see.

Start of reasonably wide shared-use path tot he A14 interchange - but there's plenty of space to make it all wide enough.

Route sign and start of narrow shared-use path

Would it be useful to build a short link to the dead-end road on the north side of The Green?

Road closure and link to shared-use path

Private road, clearly used by local dog-walkers - no use to cyclists, but one day it could link to the Cottenham road.

Somehow most of the width of this road has been privatised with just a narrow footpath left.

Gun's Lane (bridleway), Histon

Two sets of cycle stands and a disabled space at the St Andrew's Centre, Histon

Firstly this road is still two-way for cycling, and secondly I'm not convinced it's a one-way road just because of the pop-up closure at the far end - I suspect residents may still come out here.

Pop-up one-way closure of rat-run in Histon

Bridleway parallel to the busway route

The pop-up cycle lanes have vanished but will probably return.

One house, seven bikes and a trailer.

As requested (#162384) a crossing is being provided to link to the new route beside the A1307 - but still it's hardly Dutch-standard provision.
