Guided Bus Way

Postby Ivor Tingting » 3 Sep 2019, 12:33am

For those of you who use it, it was opened again today, the stretch between Histon and Cambridge Regional College that has been closed for July and August as they work on and adjacent to the bridges. It's only path a through the works and not fully open, but perfectly safe to ride.

Please do, any pictures, is it an old rail track or what, is it used by buses too? Used to know Cranebridge quite well

Today I saw some pictures of bad cracks on the shared use path that runs beside busway, was it on this forum?


No, it was on a local facebook group. Cracks near Northstowe (a new 'town'/housing development northwest of cambridge).

Attached are a couple of photos that I have sent to the Busway Maintenance Manager and Cambs CC today. Hopefully they will take appropriate action quickly to avoid a nasty accident. This is just north of Northstowe!
