A428 Cambridge northern bypass

Looking west near Madingley, showing the A1303 junction off-slip crossing the A428 mainline. Just visible are blue signs westbound which presumably show 'end of dual carriageway ahead'. Both the A428 and A1303 were previously the A45 in ages past.

Looking east, just east of the start-point at the A1303 junction near Madingley. This used to be the A45 until the early '90s, as well as the entire dual carriageway to Felixstowe. Now the section east of M11 J14 (Girton, only a couple of mile east of here) is A14.

Worst sighted sign?

On A1309 Milton Road, Cambridge, near the roundabout with the A1134 Ring Road. As you can see, I had to take the picture from near 90 degrees!

Eastward zoom-in from eastern half of roundabout. The A14 still acts as a bypass for the A1303, but the alignments are pretty close to one another all the way to Newmarket.

No entry - can't you read?!

A forest of 'no entry' signs on St Philip's Road, Cambridge (looking W from Thoday St). This is only a small fraction of the total number on this street.

The street is effectively one-way for motor traffic with a cycle contraflow. However, for some reason it isn't explicitly signed as such - it's theoretically two-way between the junctions, hence the need for no-entry signs at each of the junction 'plugs'. Complete waste.

The newly-opened <a href='http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/transport/around/thebusway/' rel='nofollow'>Cambridge Guided Busway</a>, south of Cambridge station. A pair of 'car traps' (ie gravelly pits in the centre of the road) stop narrower vehicles gaining access.
Girton with A428 links.png
In 2007 a £1bn+ scheme for improving the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon was announced. In 2009 several designs for Girton Interchange were drawn up. The most ambitious of these had links to and from the A428. It is unlikely this option would have been chosen given that the additional links would have raised the cost of an already very expensive scheme.
