Your otherwise balanced piece about the excellent Crawley Fastway guided bus project (NCE 2 September), raises the old chestnut of bus versus tram.
We should be breaking out of this sterile debate and recognise that there are situations where different solutions are needed depending upon passenger flows, available space, degree of separation from general traffic and other local factors.
We don't need busways or trams - we need them both, each in the setting where they can deliver best value for money.
That requires us to get procurement mechanisms and project structures right, so that unit costs for both modes are driven down and limited funding for urban transport investment delivers more schemes.
