Bus Lanes: Cambridgeshire

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 13 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the (a) original and (b) latest estimated cost is of (i) the Cambridgeshire guided busway and (ii) the Luton-Dunstable busway. (246330)

The original 2003 cost estimate submitted for Department for Transport (DFT) approval for the Cambridge Guided Busway was £73.8 million. When final approval for the scheme was provided in 2006, the revised cost was £116.2 million, which remains the current overall scheme cost estimated by Cambridgeshire county council.

The Luton-Dunstable Busway had an original cost of £84.39 million in 2003. That cost remains unchanged and is subject to scrutiny before final DFT approval currently expected in 2009.
