I read the pieces about Metrobus in the current issue (‘Bristol Metrobus ready to roll’, ‘First sub-contracts Metrobus route to social enterprise firm’ LTT13 Apr).

Although MetroBus (also known in Bristol as Metrobust) has provided you with a positive spin with their press release, I think the following issues also need to be recognised and investigated:

• The project cost has risen from £176m at DfT approval stage to £230m now (actually probably more)...

+75% more
