Opening of the longest guided busway: Cambridge UK and extensions to Brisbane's Busways
Along the alignment of a former railway, the busway opened in the second half of last year. It is the longest guided busway link in the world at 25 kms. Like part of the busways in Brisbane, Australia, this guided busway uses disused railway alignment and connects through rural areas to outlying villages in Cambridgeshire. Brisbane opened another two sections of Busway, linking the east to the CBD and a short extension to the northern end of the system which will be further extended in 2012.
