NEW bus lanes for Huntingdon that were intended to speed up travel on a new bus link with Cambridge are set to be ditched.
The planned lanes in Hartford Road and Hinchingbrooke Park Road were intended to make public transport journeys faster between St Ives and Huntingdon, and between the Hinchingbrooke area and the town centre.
But now, in what local county councillors claim to be an exercise in people power, they say Cambridgeshire County Council's cabinet will dump them at its meeting next week (November 4), saving several million pounds.
But the councillors were unable to say what the future was for the future of the remainder of the Hartford Road scheme, which includes a variety of environmental and road safety measures, including new footpaths, cycleways, street lighting and speed limits.

New bus lanes for Old Houghton Road, westbound, in Hartford, and Houghton Road, St Ives (eastbound) appear to have survived the cull.
