Cambs CA consults on CAM vision


May 2020

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority is consulting on its vision for an 87.5-mile busway network, dubbed the Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro (CAM).

CAM is being championed by James Palmer, the combined authority’s elected mayor. The network would be focused on Cambridge, with branches serving St Neots, Alconbury, Mildenhall, Haverhill, Hauxton and Waterbeach. The intention is for services to operate in tunnels within Cambridge city centre. 

Subject to planning permission, approvals and funding, the CA says regional routes could  become operational “from 2024 onwards” with the city tunnel section following “by 2029”.

A consultation on the tunnelled sections was launched at the end of February and ran to 3 April (LTT 06 Mar). The new consultation covers the new CAM sub-strategy of the CA’s recently approved local transport plan. 

According to the combined authority, CAM will provide a “best-in-class passenger experience” in terms of “journey time reliability, smoothness of ride, vehicle and stop quality, level boarding, fully electric operation and off-vehicle ticketing”.
