The County Council announced in January that it had secured £1.7 million of funding from the Department for Transport’s Better Bus Area Fund (BBAF). Most of this money went on major schemes in Cambridge but it did make available an amount for which parishes could bid. Histon & Impington Parish Council did just that and was successful and funding has been approved for a bus shelter at the Coppice (Cambridge bound).
This bus stop is a difficult one because the pavement level is low and access to the bus is from a grass verge. It is therefore also intended to improve the stop itself and funding for this is available from the Northern Area Corridor section 106 fund from which the parish council has been granted funding.
