Separating buses from cyclists and pedestrians

At a meeting of the Cambridge South Area Committee on 4 June, Councillor Katie Thornburrow proposed the erection of fencing along the stretch between Trumpington Park & Ride and Addenbrooke's Hospital to help keep cyclists and pedestrians separate from buses.

A brief report of the relevant part of that meeting has appeared in the Cambridge Independent.

UPDATE 0940 on 11 June: Less than an hour after I posted the above, the Cambridge News is reporting some sort of collision involving a pedestrian and a guided bus, close to Long Road. Inevitably the details are somewhat sketchy at this point.


  1. The Luton=Dunstable busway has this where it runs beside Hatters Way in Luton. There is a footpath beside the road, and almost the entire length has a wooden fence separating that footpath from the guided busway. You can see it on Google maps & Streetview. Obviously seen as more important than a fence between the path and the road.

  2. Interesting to hear about "congestion" on this part of the route. Wonder if someone could take a video and post here?
