    There is no justification for ruining this wonderful area of natural beauty and no demand for it from those who live in the vicinity.

    I don't mind the cycle bridge bridge idea but don't understand why it can't follow the existing cycle paths. They could just be made bigger. Why does it have to go across Ditton fens? I walk there regulary and its my favourite spot in Cambridge. Please don't spoil it. Keep the cycle paths where they are. ..

    While I fully support the provision of an enhanced cycle route crossing, I think this should be integrated with existing railway bridge and railway corridor - any disturbance to the meadows area should be minimised.
