East West Rail (EWRail) have started their non-statutory consultation and the preferred routes will have a significant effect on the top part of Highfields  Caldecote. They have managed to find a way through from a proposed station (Cambourne North) on the other side of the A428 and a sliver of land at the top of Highfields to the West of the BP garage. with the proposed route running at a height of some 10 metres above what is already one of the highest points in  this area.
