Bids invited for £30m Manchester Guided Busway

Transport for Greater Manchester has issued an OJEU notice for the Leigh to Ellenbrook Guided Busway, a job it estimates is worth £30 million.

The busway will use the former rail corridor running roughly 7km between Leigh town centre, at East Bond Street, and Newarth Roard, Ellenbrook close to the A580 in Manchester.

The design and build contract will entail constructing the “off-highway dedicated guided bus lanes…for vehicles adapted with kerb guidance technology.”

It includes bridges, structures, drainage, service diversions and fences.

A number of fully accessible bus stops will be constructed along the corridor, two park and ride sites, extensive signage, connections to existing junctions, footpaths, crossing points, landscaping and public highways lighting.

Advanced works have already been completed on junctions at Sale Lane and Newearth Road.

Expressions of interest should be submitted to Transport for Greater Manchester by 8 November.

The dispute between Bam Nuttal and Cambridgeshire County Council is ongoing in the high court.
