The Cambridgeshire Guided Busway linking St Ives, Cambridge and Trumpington opened on 7 August 2011. It has now passed its fifth birthday. There have been successes - millions of passengers on the buses, and thousands of cyclists, walkers and horse-riders on the 'access track'. But there have also been problems - flooding of the cycle track, punctuality spring to mind, accidents and bumpy track. The blog is for anyone who wants to discuss their experiences of using the guided busway.

Dispute between Cambridgeshire County Council and BAM Nuttall
Dr Ian Jackson has attempted to discover more details about the dispute between Cambridgeshire County Council and BAM Nuttall, the contractors who built the guided busway, and with whom the Council is in dispute. Dr Jackson invoked his rights under the Freedom of Information Act to obtain this information, but the Council has refused on the grounds of confidentiality and that releasing the information would interfere with the court case. The Council's decision has been upheld by the Information Tribunal.
