Huge plans to build metro from Cambridge to Haverhill, Huntingdon and Mildenhall


Planning for Cambridge Metro

November 2018

Huge plans to build a metro from Cambridge to Haverhill, Huntingdon and Mildenhall have been revealed.

The idea for a city metro, using a futuristic high-speed tram-like vehicle that does not run on rails, are still in the planning.

The initial idea was to link villages and towns around Cambridge, but now Mayor James Palmer has revealed plans to expand the potential metro even further.

To deliver such an ambitious project Mr Palmer, mayor of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, said he thought the best way to deliver a metro would be to set up a “mayoral development corporation” (or MDC), which would help consolidate planning powers in the region.

Proposals include having rubber-tyred, electric vehicles which can approach Cambridge on off-road routes from towns and villages, before heading underground in tunnels to avoid the traffic in the city centre.

The funding for such a scheme is yet to be secured.
