Access from Roxton Rd in the SW corner of the site. Very little traffic in the area. The closest regular bus service is the 905 stopping approx 600m away with a half-hourly service between Bedford and Cambridge. There is a pavement directly outside the site, however it is very narrow and there are no clear facilities for cyclists. A shared cycle/pedestrian path begins further up Roxton Rd about 200m from the site entrance. Widen the pavement on Roxton Rd outside the site to make it more accessible for all users. Also redesignate it is a shared cycle/pedestrian path so that it links with the existing cycle path 200m further up Roxton Road.
