Consultations – Bedford to Cambridge Rail route and Cambourne to Cambridge

The Greater Cambridge Partnership public consultation for the phase 2 section of the Cambourne to Cambridge Better Public Transport project opens in February. Please see
There is a real possibility of one of the proposed routes of the Bedford to Cambridge Rail link impacting greatly on Elsworth.
East West Rail is creating a new rail connection between Oxford and Cambridge. This will connect communities, making it faster, easier and cheaper to travel in the local area, as well as opening up job opportunities, supporting local business and helping the economy to grow. You can read more about the scheme here.
While the Western Section between Oxford and Bedford can be built by reinstating and upgrading old rail lines, for the Central Section between Bedford and Cambridge an entirely new rail line will need to be built.
About this consultation
Public consultation will run from 28 January to 11 March 2019. While it is several years from starting to build the railway, this is your opportunity to have your say on the route options at an early stage.
