Imagine your job was to choose a public transport route between Cambourne and Cambridge that delivers a better bus service than currently exists. Imagine you had three options to choose from:

  • A cheap option (£12.4M)
  • An effective but affordable option (£17.7M)
  • An expensive and environmentally-destructive option (£58M+++) that takes two minutes off the travel time but terminates in the wrong place.

Which one would you choose?

**** STOP PRESS – NOV 2017 – NOW YOU CAN GIVE YOUR VIEWS ****

The final GCP consultation on the Cambourne to Cambridge busway is now open and can be found here. We encourage all South Cambs and Cambridge residents to give their views.

We draw your attention to the fact that Route B presented in the consultation documents is a bastardised version of the community-developed scheme formulated by the Local Liaison Forum. We have been given this leaflet which explains errors in the GCP’s consultation document.

The Coton Busway Action Group supports Route B and the Scotland Farm Park+Ride site. We strongly oppose Route C (the off-road busway once known as Option 3/3A) and the Waterworks Park+Ride site on Madingley Hill.

*********************************************************************

The three options in the consultation document are explained in more detail here.

We are supportive of the Greater Cambridge Partnership’s vision for better bus journeys between Cambourne and Cambridge, but believe that the proposed Park+Ride on Madingley Hill and the favoured off-road busway route through the Green Belt will not fit with the overall transport network needed by the Greater Cambridge are.

Sign our petition to stop the off-road busway and demand better alternatives.

The City Deal’s current plan is too expensive, too environmentally destructive, lacks accessibility and flexibility. There are better, more credible alternatives.
