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.

Erosion of the Busway Embankment
Following the recent floods, there is erosion of the busway embankment along many of the stretches which flooded between Swavesey and St. Ives. Along the high water level, the waves created by the winds have removed soil from the banks, and in places created quite large holes.
This is not visible from a bus, but from the cycle track, the damage can be seen.
