Busways on OS Explorer maps

Richard Oliver
 

Hello,

'Busways' appear at Runcorn on Explorer 275 (SJ 528832, 525809, eg). Can anyone point to to any other instances of them appearing on this series?

'Guided Busway' at TL 075 219 at Luton; 'Cambridgeshire Guided Busway' at TL 374 690 near St Ives

Sorry don't know the sheet numbers -  these are from the online mapping.

The 'Henry Cort Way' Busway in Fareham/Bridgemary (at eg SU 582037) is identified as such on the Explorer, but not on the Landranger mapping (on line)

Thank you - these two seem to be railway conversions, so presumably cost OS little effort to map them!

Thank you for this: it looks like yet another rail conversion!

Fairly recently opened Metrobus https://metrobusbristol.co.uk/ dedicated busway (non-guided) in Bristol at 362500, 177217 off the M32 and the guided busway at 356800, 171950 which is partly on a railway alignment and partly new construction. They have been added to the OS maps on https://maps.bristol.gov.uk/knowyourplace/

Whether converted from old railway lines, or newly built, my understanding is that - like motorways and pedestrian precincts - busways are 'special roads'; and as such have to be shown on the map somehow.

Runcorn - as a new/developing town in the late 1960s/1970s (I think) - had quite quite a large busway network planned to serve the new areas - I recall reading publicity about it at the time - don't know how much was built. or what its subsequent history was. (At another time or place, it might have been a tramway).

Thank you, once again!
