The Cambridgeshire Guided Busway linking St Ives, Cambridge and Trumpington opened on 7 August 2011. This blog is now closed to new posts and comments. It was set up for people who travelled the busway, either as bus passengers, or users of the cycle/footpath such as pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders.
The blog remains visible as a historic record. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the blog over the past decade.

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.
