Questions in parliament: the Guided Bus

And here’s another question about a topic in which most of us have an interest and this one did secure a promise of action 


Dr Huppert: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will hold a public inquiry into the Cambridge Guided Bus project; and for what reasons his Department decided to allocate funding to the Luton and Dunstable Guided Bus project. [66]
7 Jun 2010 : Column 36W

Norman Baker [holding answer 2 June 2010]: The issue of how best to assess the delivery of the Cambridgeshire Guided Bus scheme, and how the contract for the scheme has worked, is a matter for the scheme promoter, Cambridgeshire county council. However, I have asked my officials to begin investigating options for a review of guided bus policy, which will draw on the Cambridgeshire experience, among others. I will write to my hon. Friend shortly to confirm details of this review.

Funding for the Luton Dunstable Busway scheme was approved by the previous Government under the arrangements at that time for assessing and approval of local major transport schemes.
