I spotted this on the Busway quite recently and wondered what could be going on here. Who’s driving on the Busway?
The pit is a kind of car trap and designed to catch cars which try to drive onto the Busway as their wheels are closer together. Buses on the other hand have a wider track and the wheels fit just inside the metal guide rails.
Seeing the sandbags positioned like that made me question what could be going on? Certainly looks as if a car or another light vehicle has driven onto the Busway.
This, by the way, is at the Station Road, Dunstable. Can someone tell me what’s going on?
I had wondered whether it had anything to do with the recent surfacing work which had taken place; this is where the gritty surface had been upgraded to a smooth tarmac. Perhaps but not completely plausible.
