This is the last stage of preparing the guided busway before the actual track blocks are set in place. I guess these are the modern day equivalent of a sleeper.
Cambridgeshire Guided Busway :: TL4555
Funding for the 'Guided Busway' was first applied for in July 2002. Cambridgeshire was awarded 92.5 million.
