Busway in this week's local papers

Both the Hunts Post (19 October, page 27) and the Huntingdon & St Ives News & Crier ( 20 October, page 35) pick up the theme of the high cost of the guided busway. The Liberal Democrat group in Cambridgeshire County Council claim the the Council could end up with extra interest payments of £21m if the court case against BAM Nuttall is lost.  The final bill for the busway could go over £200m. £126m has been provided by the government and developers, leaving  £90m that might have to be paid for by taxpayers' money,

The News & Crier (also page 35) notes that the bus driver who ran over a bicycle in an incident on 1 October has been disciplined.

  1. Can you introduce a link to this site on the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway Wikipedia page? Also, what about a link from the Cast Iron webside, which still exists?
