Cambridge is a small city, in area and in population, with an historic centre and a booming economy even in these recessionary times. The city is changing fast with buildings as young as 40 years old being demolished and rebuilt while complete blocks and suburbs of the city are being developed.
It can be a challenge to get around the city: road space is limited and there is often intense competition between private cars, tourist coaches, buses, cyclists and pedestrians. The city’s small size and flat terrain mean there is a lot of walking and cycling without which the city would grind to a halt.
In this blog I will look at some of the issues the city faces as it grows, from the perspective of a resident. I will try to focus on data rather than rants.
