Cambridgeshire lodges busway legal claim with TCC

Cambridgeshire County Council has lodged a legal claim with the Technology and Construction Court for money it claims is owed by Bam Nuttall on its recently opened guided busway, NCE has learned.

The TCC affirmed today that a claim from the Cambridgeshire County Council had been received on 11 August.

Bam Nuttall will have four months and two weeks to acknowledge the claim. Until this happens, the claim details cannot be publicly revealed.

Previously, the council stated that its contractural issues with the busway were:

  • River Great Ouse Viaduct − exposed expansion joint could be adversely affected by water flow
  • St Ives Park and Ride site − standing water because of gradient issues.
  • Maintenance track − although part of a flood plain it is alleged to be flooding because of rainfall.
  • Guideway foundations − the council is seeking assurances over a change of design
  • Guideway beams − some spacings are too narrow
  • Rubber tyre infill between beams − the council wants assurance on safety of the material.
