Guided bus rails & some colour
I hope the delays in building the busway will not be a reflection on how well the service will run. Whilst many sections of concrete are now in place the bridges and terminus at Cambridge railway station are far from ready. See TL4556 : The rails have arrived! for a slightly earlier view.
Cambridgeshire Guided Busway :: TL4555

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.
