Lift me up
Heavy plant which had been used for building the road bridge across the railway line for the new Addenbrooke's access road. When I took this picture the bridge appeared to be complete so I was not sure what the remaining concrete supports are for. (I have subsequently discovered that the concrete beams will form the rails for the 'Guided Bus' which will run along this route on a spur to the hospital.)
Cambridgeshire Guided Busway
Funding for the 'Guided Busway' was first applied for in July 2002. Cambridgeshire was awarded 92.5 million. By 2009 the estimated cost was put at 116.27million, in 2010 this estimate had risen to 161.0 million. By the end of 2010 the overall cost of this much delayed project was put at 180+ million.
Early photos taken during the construction phase were first taken in December 2007, it opened on 7 August 2011. See LinkExternal link for the official take on the route and services.
