The Busway update - Tuesday 15 February

Contractors BAM Nuttall have not yet completed construction of The Busway. Mark Lloyd, Cambridgeshire County Council's Chief Executive has written to BAM Nuttall to ask when the outstanding documents - which are manditory and act as a guaranatee on their works - will be made available. These are the final pieces of information that are needed for The Busway to be certified as complete.

BAM Nuttall were appointed to complete construction of The Busway in February 2009 and since then the County Council has been deducting damages of almost £14,000 a day from the contractor for late delivery. Damages deducted to date exceed £9 million.

BAM Nuttall have not rectified six outstanding defects on the route between St Ives and Cambridge that they were notified of more than a year ago. At the point when the Busway contract with BAM Nuttall is certified as complete, the contractor will be permitted 28 days to fix all the defects to the Council's satisfaction. If, as expected, the contractor fails to complete the work within the permitted time the Council will bring in a new contractor to fix the defects. The cost of the works by another contractor will be charged to BAM Nuttall.

The latest information can be found in the report being presented to the Council's Cabinet on 22 February.
