Deluded fools

Goods news for fans of Guided bus routes.

This from Portsmouth Today...

A high-speed bus route on a disused railway track is set to get county approval tomorrow.

The £20m transport link between Gosport and Fareham looks likely to get backing from Hampshire County Council to reduce congestion on the busy A32.

Lets hope they can actually afford passenger facilities for this one.

A cconventional busway or a Guided Bus?

Conventional, I think.

This Fareham-Gosport trackbed was to be the tram route to Portsmouth.

Now intending travellers will have to go bus-ferry-bus to Portsmouth City Centre which is not much better than the present arrangement.

Perhaps it makes sense at the Fareham end?
