The primary street around Eddington (Eddington Avenue/Turing Way) is now open. The areas that are open can be viewed on this downloadable map. Some areas remain restricted due to operational mobilisation and construction works.

The Ridgeway (cycle and pedestrian route) from Bunkers Hill to Eddington, and from Storey’s Field to Storey’s Way is also open.

To ensure the safety of pedestrians and cyclists, from 1 September cars will not be permitted on the Horse Chestnut Avenue between Gravel Hill Farm and Huntingdon Road.
