THE first consultation over which route should be taken by East West Rail between Bedford and Cambridge has attracted thousands of responses.

The consultation, which has now closed, attracted more than 3,500 people at eight public events, and also received feedback from thousands more.

EWR chief executive Simon Blanchflower said: ‘We are hugely encouraged by the level of interest people have shown in the project and thank everybody who took the time to attend our events or got in touch over the course of the consultation.

‘The team will now be looking at all the comments we’ve received and working with partners and the government as we narrow down to a preferred route option. Bedford, Cambridge and the communities in between need the right kind of infrastructure to support them and the insight we have received from local people will help us to deliver that.’
