Bus link to the new station

The busway route N and Citi 2 bus services provide transport links to the station.

The busway was extended to link the existing section from Milton Road to the station. This link is a bus-only road with guided sections at the entrance and exit. As with the existing busway, there is a track alongside it. which can be used by cyclists and pedestrians.

Buses  cross straight over Milton Road from the St Ives busway to the new station.

Local Liaison Forum

A Local Liaison Forum was established to meet regularly during the construction of the busway.

The main purpose of the Local Liaison Forum was to facilitate communication and understanding between interested parties. It provided an informal forum for representatives of interest groups to:

  • give an update on progress,
  • discuss any matters arising, and
  • get questions answered.

Network Rail is responsible for the Local Liaison Forum.
