East West Rail Link: Consultation opens as route options revealed

January 2019

Communities across South Cambs are being urged to have their say on proposed routes for the new East West Rail Link.

A public consultation is open until March 11, with South Cambs District Council set to send a response after debating it at its cabinet meeting on March 6.

The council is urging residents to have their say, with deputy leader Aidan Van de Weyer saying: “We will be making sure the views of our communities are heard by responding to the consultation, but I want to urge everyone locally to have their say.

“The new railway line is important to the area as we need genuine alternatives to the car to help people to get around for work and leisure.

“It also opens up a huge part of the country to our residents where no direct and fast public transport links have been available.”

Back in September, the district council backed plans for the East West Rail Link – but said they wanted to see issues such as flood management, noise and air pollution, and health taken into consideration when selecting the route.
