A guided busway being built in Cambridgeshire has just over a mile of track left to be laid before the project is finished.

The busway, which is already the world's longest track, will run customers between the new St Ives park and ride and Cambridge in 20 minutes.

Cambridgeshire County Council hopes it will become an alternative to the A14.

Construction of the busway has now reached Huntingdonshire. It is due to open in the summer.

Bob Menzies, head of delivery for the guided busway at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: "When residents tried out a section of the busway a couple of weeks ago the reaction was very positive.

"The busway is an impressive sight and I'm sure the people of Huntingdonshire will enjoy watching it take shape in the weeks and months ahead."
