Changes in Cambridge in 2019
Although it’s one of the most historic cities in the UK, few things in Cambridge stay the same for long. From new restaurants and pubs to new commercial developments, things in the city are always on the move.
Whether you live in Cambridge or are just visiting, exploring these new attractions is a great way to get to know the area even better. To help you navigate the sights and attractions of Cambridge, we’re taking a look at some of the most exciting additions to the city in 2019.
According to @CambridgeNewsUK, “Cambridge market is at the heart of the city, and we all pick up great things there from time to time.” One of the most prominent landmarks in the city, the market is loved by residents and visitors alike. Over the past few years, however, the market has become to look a little rough around the edges. Traders complained about poor facilities and the square itself had begun to look a little rundown.
Luckily, help was at hand. The local council have recently invested a large amount of money in the Market Square and the area is now undergoing significant development. Expect to see a new outdoor seating area, bicycle parking and new and improved market stalls coming to Cambridge in 2019.
Although Cambridge is small enough to navigate by foot, public transport is still important to life in the city. Over the coming months, we’re likely to find out more about how public transport will evolve in Cambridge during the next few years.
Expect to see the first trials of autonomous shuttles in the city. Keep your eyes peeled for information about how the future Cambridge Metro will impact on life in the city.
Another important city landmark currently getting a makeover is Station Square. The old square is already virtually unrecognisable and the development work on the new and improved landmark is almost complete.
Murdoch House, a former office building on the edge of the square, will soon be demolished to create more public space and improve circulation. Once complete, the square will be a hub for local public transport links and form a major modern landmark in the city.
As well as a number of physical changes, 2019 is likely to bring some digital changes to Cambridge. For students, one of the most exciting innovations is Hubbl. This new app has been designed to act as a hub for all Cambridge events, making it easy for locals to find out what’s going on in the area. Completely free, Hubbl will list events including gigs, comedy, theatre and art exhibitions.
