Communities urged to have their say on Cambridge-Oxford rail link

January 2019

Councillors are urging communities to have their say on proposed routes a new railway line between Cambridge and Oxford may take across South Cambridgeshire.

Leading Councillors have said the new railway link plays an important part in maintaining a thriving economy in South Cambridgeshire and will genuinely open up employment opportunities as Oxford can be reached in just 70 minutes on the train.

Routes for consultation published yesterday (Monday 28 January) by East West Rail include options that could include a new station near Cambourne or Bassingbourn.

South Cambridgeshire District Council will be responding to the consultation after debating it at a Cabinet meeting on 6 March.

The Council wrote to the Government and promoters of the railway following a Council meeting in September to call on them to give the environment full and through consideration when selecting the route.
