Kathleen Pitts, 52, of Ravensworth Gardens, Cambridge, was on foot near Sedley Taylor Road when the collision happened at just after 6pm on October 26.

In a short statement, her family, including her son Liam Pitts, 22, said that they were heartbroken and asked for privacy to grieve at this very difficult time.

For funeral arrangements, they advised people to visit Shires Funeral Directors Baldock.

The driver of the bus was uninjured and remained at the scene. An investigation into the incident continues.

The Health and Safety Executive said it was investigating that incident with police, but has yet to conclude its probe into the 2018 death of cyclist Steve Moir, 50, from Sawston, who died in similar area of the busway, between Long Road and Cambridge railway station.

Cambridgeshire County Council has said there will be an “independent analysis” of that section after Mr Moir’s family called for an urgent safety review following Ms Pitts’s death.

Meanwhile, a 16-year-old cyclist was left with life-threatening injuries after a collision with a bus on a separate section of the guided busway in the city yesterday (Tuesday November 9), near Chariot Way.

The teenager was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital where he remains in a serious but stable condition.
