The Cambridge Guided Busway is to provide high quality, reliable and frequent local public transport along the A14 corridor.
Buses will travel on a guideway along the disused railway line from St Ives to Cambridge. They will continue through Cambridge on normal roads and re-join the guideway at Cambridge Railway Station to travel through to Addenbrooke’s Hospital and Trumpington Park and Ride.
Soil profiling was undertaken at various locations along the alignment of the guideway of the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway by means of hand dug test pits. The aim of the test pits was to determine the depth of top and subsoil but not to excavate archaeological features at this stage.
The programme was generally successful, apart from one rea adjacent to the A14 where there was extensive modern disturbance (Area M). Area D was removed from the programme as the mitigation strategy has changed.
