Cambridgeway busway battle ends with £33m deal

Contractor BAM Nuttall has agreed to pay Cambridgeshire County Council £33m, settling the long-running legal battle over the cost of building the county's guided busway.

BAM Nuttall had claimed the council owed it about £70m after the cost of the project rose from the agreed fee of £83.9m to more than £150m.

But the council says BAM Nuttall, which handed over the project two years later than planned, has now agreed to pay back £33m of the £117.7m it was paid.

BAM Nuttall told the BBC it did not want to comment.
