As you will be aware, there are several proposals for a new East / West rail line between Oxford and Cambridge. These proposals will have a huge impact on the whole area and infrastructure we live within. There is a public consultation on 5 routes proposed, where you can comment on the proposals, routes and their approach. To have your say on these massive changes, please visit http://eastwestrail.co.uk/haveyoursay by 11:45pm on 11th March.
Once all the feedback has been received and analysed, East/West rail will announce a preferred route.
The Parish Council has agreed to formally object to the southern route proposed, opting instead for the northern route proposed by CamBedRailRoad. More information can be found by visiting www.CamBedRailRoad.org
