Milton on a winter afternoon
Milton on a winter afternoon
The car had just come down from the A10/A14 junction and was turning into Milton. After a wet morning the sun had broken through at about 2.30, but in early January was low in the sky shortly after three o'clock. The Jane Coston Cycle Bridge over the A14 is in the background.
Jane Coston cycle bridge
The Jane Coston bridge was built to give cyclists and pedestrians a safer route between Milton and Cambridge than the busy roundabout interchange with A14. It opened on 18 May 2004, allowing cyclists and pedestrians to cross from Cowley Road to Milton. The 77m main span carries NCN 11 over the dual-carriageway A14.

It is named after local county councillor Jane Coston, who campaigned for many years for the bridge to be built.
