Last month, Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) announced with Highways England that some repairs would be needed to the busway track following some damage from their sheet piling work. CCC also explained some further closures of the cycle path would be required in the New Year to carry out these repairs.
The busway track needs to be made safe before buses can run on it again, these repairs will begin on Monday 6 January and will last for approximately one month. CCC have worked hard with Highways England to keep the cycle path open when possible, however, during this repair work the maintenance track will be closed.
For people using the Guided Busway maintenance track, please follow the signed diversion route via Cambridge Road (Impington), B1049/A14 roundabout, Histon Road, Kings Hedges Road and back on the Orchard Park busway path.
Buses going into Cambridge (southbound) between Histon and Orchard Park East will continue to be diverted via the Histon junction over the A14. People travelling into Cambridge from Histon can board diverted services from the stop on Cambridge Road.
