Edinburgh Western Corridor Busway (Fastlink)

In 1991, Alan Howes provided advice on operational and management aspects of the proposed segregated busway to Lothian Regional Council, as a sub-consultant to Arup.

The 1.5 km bi-directional guided busway opened in December 2004, and provided significant benefits in terms of bus running time and reliability. However, it closed in January 2008 for conversion to a tramway as part of the Edinburgh Tram project, which is now unlikely to open before 2014.
