Where is the lighting installed?

The street light column lamps are installed:
  • on the southern section of the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway between Cambridge railway station and Trumpington Park & Ride
  • on the northern section of the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway between Milton Road, Cambridge and the A14 underpass

The maintenance track adjacent to the Busway is designated as a bridleway and used by a considerable number of pedestrians and cyclists at all times of the year. Lighting the route will help to improve visibility of hazards as well as cyclists and pedestrians, further encouraging use of this facility and active travel modes in and around Cambridge.

Reporting issues

To report an issue with lighting along the guided busway, please email our guided busway team at parkride@cambridgeshire.gov.uk
