Rival bodies are advancing competing plans for bus-based solutions to the congestion that is crippling the growing city of Cambridge and the roads leading from its surrounding commuter villages
Everyone acknowledges that congestion is a problem in fast-growing Cambridge. That much everyone agrees.
One report reckons a quarter of people’s commuting time in Cambridge is spent in traffic jams. The city’s population is estimated to exceed 145,000; it has grown by a third in the past 20 years and another 10,000 people are expected by 2025. Job creation has risen even faster, resulting in more commuters trying to access the city.
