Cambridge: Fresh Legal Action Over Busway Defects
Fresh legal action against guided busway builder BAM Nuttall threatened by Cambridgeshire County Council as serious track faults discovered
The issues include gaps between the guideway beams, drainage in some areas and problems with the support shims.
County Council Leader Martin Curtis, said: "We are determined that the success of the Busway will be maintained. As with all major engineering schemes we are keeping a close eye on the performance of the structure to ensure it meets the standards demanded during construction and to identify any repair or maintenance work outside of what could have reasonably been expected when the track was built.
"It is right and proper that any faults which are the responsibility of BAM Nuttall are put right at no cost to Cambridgeshire taxpayers and if professional experts find unexpected or additional repair or maintenance work is necessary we shall seek to recover the full cost of that work from BAM - even if that means taking further legal action.
"The proposals which will be discussed by Cabinet are designed to keep the pressure on BAM to ensure that they meet the required requirements of the original construction contract."
