Route unclear though Councillors and Officers will not rule out that it will pass through Coton.
Big response needed from residents when consultation process takes place in September.
Public meeting later this month – date and venue to be confirmed.
Watch this space for more details.
A Busway scheme was agreed by the County Council in principle last January and Government Citydeal money (£100 million) is available to pay for it. It is designed to reduce travel time down Madingley Road into the centre of Cambridge during the morning rush hour by introducing a new bus-only route.
There are 3 possible routes, one through Coton. The three proposed options:
1a. widen Madlingley Road (saves 7 minutes, costs £18 million)
1b. loop behind the American cemetery (saves 9 minutes, costs £20 million)
1c. new road between Coton and Madingley Road linking Madlingley Mulch to Grange Road (saves 11 minutes, costs £65 million!)
There is little detailed information available but one suggestion is right through the centre of the village. More information can be found here Busway update 13.6.15
