WORK will start next spring to change the face of the Great Ouse Valley east of St Ives.
Contractors will clear undergrowth to make way for a site office to oversee replacement of the disused Victorian railway viaduct with a bus guideway. The last train ran in 1994.
The deck that carried a single track across the river will be removed to give engineers access to repair the piers before a new superstructure - with twin guideways and a service track - is built on top.
The work is scheduled to be completed by October 2008, ready for opening in February 2009, of the guideway for guided bus services between Huntingdon and Cambridge, with links to Hinchingbrooke and Addenbrooke's Hospitals.
