We, the undersigned, call upon Whippet Coaches and Stagecoach East to instruct their drivers to reduce their speed to 20mph on the section of the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway between Cambridge Railway Station and Long Road railway bridge until the results of the Health and Safety Executive investigation into the fatal accident on September 13 are published and can be considered.

We believe this step is necessary to make this section of the Busway safe for pedestrians and cyclists who are in close proximity to buses with no safety markings, fence, or other protection from fast-moving vehicles, and would be in compliance with the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway Operations Handbook v1.2, clauses 3.11, 7.6 and 7.8.

See https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/84267/response/206265/attach/3/FOI%201311%20APP1.pdf?cookie_passthrough=1

If the speed was reduced then drivers have a chance of reacting to people or other obstacles in the Busway in time, which may avoid or reduce the severity of any injuries.
