The letter, written by Abbey councillors Nicky Massey, Richard Johnson and Haf Davies, calls for urgent resolution of the issues.
He said: “We write as Cambridge City Councillors for abbey ward regarding unacceptable traffic and litter caused by the reopening of the McDonald’s drive-thru.
“The reopening has led to an increase in traffic and traffic jams. There are long queues along Wadloes Road and Newmarket Road, and blockages on the busy Barnwell Road roundabout.
“Congestion is a cause of great frustration and inconvenience to local residents and is a serious concern about air pollution due to the number of idling vehicles.
“In addition, the reopening has also resulted in a significant increase in the amount of waste dumped in the area.
“These issues need to be addressed urgently and, if no adequate solution is found, the drive must be closed until a robust and compliant traffic management plan is in place.
“We note that McDonald’s has made a statement informing customers that restaurants that pass by the road would close if their reopening created local disruption.”
A petition to move the McDonald’s permanently has garnered hundreds of signatures. Residents say their lives have improved while the restaurant was closed during the lockdown.
