Cambridge-St Ives guided bus is a 'white elephant'

The money would have been better spent on upgrading the A14 to a three lane highway which would have improved bus times. A park and ride could still have been constructed at St Ives.

As rate payers we will be paying for the council's expensive bus follies for decades.

Has anyone seen a bus on the new Huntingdon bus lane which only serves buses coming in from the north?

Editor's note: The majority of the money for the guided bus project (�92.5m) was provided by Government and the remainder by developers who are building in the area.
