The directly-elected Mayor and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority hold strategic transport powers and are the Local Transport Authority for the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough area. They are responsible for allocating local transport funding to the most important local roads to help improve traffic flow and reduce congestion. The Mayor sets the overall transport strategy for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, called the Local Transport Plan.
The Combined Authority's first Local Transport Plan is currently being produced but you can download the Interim Local Transport Plan. This document brings together the Local Transport Plans previously agreed by Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council. They are now adopted into a single plan for the whole area.

Combined Authority's Local Transport Plan Consultation
A series of consultation events have been announced across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough for members of the public to have their say on the future of the area's transport network to 2050.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority's Local Transport Plan (LTP) will set out an ambitious, challenging and exciting strategy for a world-class, integrated transport network, which addresses current and anticipated future pressures on infrastructure, while also supporting housing and economic growth.
You can find further details and information on how to respond on the Cambridgeshire-Peterborough Combined Authority website.
Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems bid application
The council has applied for a scheme which will implement user centric solutions enabling blind and partially sighted people to access and move around the city centre in a safer and more independent manner. This will be achieved through the use of newly emerging digital technology to provide real time, two-way, journey information directly to visually impaired users.
Another objective is to provide staff and visitors to the new RNIB head office in the city centre safe, accessible routes from the main transport hubs (Rail and Bus Stations). As a result, accessibility will be improved for up to 425 people per week.
Many individuals find the prospect of going out, especially into the city centre, too daunting and therefore are forced to stay at home or seek a less efficient alternative. This can effect individuals emotionally, socially and economically.
