You can watch a report from ITV Anglia's Elodie Harper here:
Plans to build a major cycleway between Royston and Cambridge has moved a step closer with the opening of a new stretch of track between Melbourn Science Park and Shepreth.
The 2.5m-wide and 2.5km-long cycle path cost £550k to build and should help commuters find a greener way to work.
After work is completed widening the cycleway at Harston this summer, the path from Melbourn will provide an 11 mile cycleway into Cambridge. The hope is it will become a healthier, greener method to commute.
The bid is now in for over £3 million of funding to extend the route from Melbourn Science Park all the way to Royston and that would involve building a new bridge over the A505.
There are also plans to improve routes from villages surrounding Cambridge, meaning cycleways like this should become an ever more familiar part of our countryside.
