Guided bus service between St Ives and Cambridge hits further setbacks

The long delayed guided bus way link between St Ives and Cambridge has hit further setbacks this week due to problems with construction certificates.


The £116 million travel way, which is being installed by BAM Nuttall, is at risk of being delayed further after the company failed to produce the correct certificates at a meeting with Cambridgeshire County Council this week.


Linking Cambridge with St Ives and serving as a valuable commuter and shopping route for both cities, the track was due to opened in February 2009, but continuous delays have meant construction of the busway could potentially continue well into 2011.


Councillor Roy Pegram, the chief responsible for Cambridge's transport infrastructure, confessed his disappointment with the ongoing problems: “They indicated months ago they were as keen as us for the process to be as quick as possible and they simply haven’t met those pledges.

“This is yet another example of BAM Nuttall not delivering on their promises.”
