Have your say on Bedford-Cambridge routes, say East West Rail


East West Corridor

February 2019

Ambitious plans for a new rail line between Bedford and Cambridge have come one step closer to fruition, as the East West Railway Company reveals five route options and ask the public to have their say.

The new line will restore the direct connection between Bedford and Cambridge. It has the potential to reduce journey times and transport costs for thousands of people across the area, as well as supporting housing growth and boosting the local economy. 

It is expected to be built by the mid-2020s, marking the completion of the link between Oxford to Cambridge and the next phase of the East West Rail link.

Of the five options offered for consultation, three take a broadly southern route through South Cambridgeshire via Bassingbourn. Two take a broadly northern route via Cambourne.

The consultation also reveals options for potential new stations along the routes, including at Sandy and Tempsford.
