2017 Technical Visit – Cambridge 6/6/17


On Tuesday 6th of June Cambridgeshire County Council and Vix Technology will be hosting the 2017 BRT UK Technical Visit.

This event is free to attend, all you need to do is book your place using the Eventbrite website (takes 3 minutes) or contact Tom Hacker, the BRT UK Secretary.

The now world famous Cambridge Guided Busway if finally complete !   Although the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway opened in August 2011 the powers to build the Busway included an extension to a proposed new station on the main Cambridge to Ely railway.   The new Cambridge North station opens on 21st May together with this final link in the Busway.  The station has been designed as an integrated transport hub and as a gateway to new developments on the northern fringe of Cambridge.

The visit will begin at 10.00 at Cambridge North Railway Station where representatives from Cambridgeshire County Council will give attendees a guided tour of the new facility.

We will then make our way by bus to Vix Technology’s office in the Cambridge Science Park for 11.30. Food and drinks will be provided free of charge to all attendees.

Here we will hear presentations from Cambridgeshire County Council and Vix Technology around the latest developments in the City including the Greater Cambridge City Deal and the future of BRT in the City.

At around 14.00 we will make our way by bus out onto the Guided Busway towards the new town of Northstowe before returning to Cambridge North Railway Station for around 16.00.

This visit will be an excellent opportunity for anyone who has not experienced the system, is interested in best practice around BRT/heavy rail interchange , wishes to hear the latest developments in the UK’s leading BRT City or all of the above.

If you have any questions around the event please contact Tom Hacker, the BRT UK Secretary.
