Coton footpath and bridleway closed

Coton Path Re-opened

Update: the Coton path and footbridge are open!


The re-opening originally scheduled for 18 December was delayed due to unforeseen requirements to strengthen the embankment. The path re-opened at approximately 4pm on Friday 16 April 2021 (for details see the update section at the end).


The Coton path and bridleway is a popular route over the M11 between the West Cambridge site and Coton village for walkers and cyclists. Local resident's received a newsletter from Highways England last October stating maintenance of the M11 bridleway bridge would be completed on Friday 11 December 2020.

Eddington Speedwatch

Residents are concerned about the increasing traffic in and around Eddington, especially near the primary school. On behalf of Axel Zeitler, who runs Speedwatch in Eddington, we are therefore calling for volunteers for the Community Speedwatch scheme, in which local residents actively get involved in monitoring the speed of vehicles travelling through Eddington.

Huntingdon Road Surgery Patient Group

Huntingdon Road Surgery Patient Group

The Huntingdon Road Surgery (HRS) is calling for local volunteers to assist with vaccinations.

The HRS Patient Group met on 26 March to discuss what patients think about services and to establish their priorities, the ERA is also represented in this group.

Practice staff reported the vaccination process has been very smooth and shortage of parking space is not a problem. The practice is working hard to vaccinate the whole patient community but more volunteers are needed. Phase 1 (cohorts 1 - 9) are starting to receive their second doses, vaccinations for the over-40s will start in May.

Abandoned Trolleys

Trolley Quest

Members of the ERA committee went on a quest to rescue abandoned supermarket trolleys from around the Eddington estate. In line with COVID restrictions, six members split into three pairs and collected 27 trolleys over a one hour search.

The ERA is aware some residents are concerned about abandoned trolleys. One resident posted on Facebook, "When we walk around Eddington we see trolleys everywhere and sometimes wonder if there are any left at their rightful place."

Eddington topic of A-level and GCSE research projects

The sustainable nature of the Eddington development does not only spark interest amongst professional bodies (see the many awards Eddington has won so far for architecture, etc.) but also amongst schools and pupils. A growing number of students are using Eddington as a research topic in their courses or final year projects. The ERA is regularly receiving questions to advertise questionnaires, provide input, etc. and we are happy to help.
