Wintringham is in a great location - with the historic market town of St Neots on the doorstep and Huntingdon, Cambridge and Bedford all within 20 miles. You can also reach London in 45 minutes on the train.
With a wide variety of villages, towns and cities - as well as rivers and countryside - all within easy travelling distance - you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Connections to Wintringham
Wintringham will deliver walkable neighbourhoods, with easy, safe access to facilities and amenities.
We will do this by ensuring the majority of homes are within 800m of schools, shops and services, keeping speed limits to 30mph or below. This includes the creation of nearly 9 kilometres of cycleways, including perimeter trails and links to local cycle networks. This will include a cycle route along Cambridge Road to provide a new 'super cycle' connection into St Neots as well as cycle connections to Love's Farm and the railway station.
At least 70% of homes will be within easy walking distance (400m) of at least one bus stop and services will link well to rail and strategic express bus services to key centres of employment, including St Neots, Cambourne, Cambridge and Milton Keynes.
Improving road links
A huge series of investments will create additional capacity and connections across the local area. Following on from completion of the £1.4 billion upgrade of the A14 (completing December 2020), Highways England recently announced the route for the planned upgrade of the A428, which will see the current road become a local road alongside the strategic route. Additional investment is planned for the A1 and along the Oxford Milton Keynes Cambridge Corridor, alongside an East West rail link.
We will also be investing in a series of access points to manage flow from the development onto the local network, and a range of capacity improvements across the local road network to address existing pinch points.
