East West Rail Consultation: 31 March – 9 June 2021
On 31st March 2021, East West Rail (EW Rail) launched a new non-statutory consultation period for the new Oxford to Cambridge railway line. Based on the findings from their previous consultations they proposed five different routes, two of which (alignments 1&9), are a completely new route that has not been consulted on before and EW Rail have announced that this is their preferred option. Alignments 1& 9 cut through the top end of our village.
Fierce lobbying by the villagers to the South during the previous consultations has led EW Rail to consider a station to the North. EW Rail have revisited this question and have come back with the same technical reasons why this is not feasible. Instead, EW Rail have staggeringly found a sliver of land across the top of Highfields that allows them to still approach Cambridge from the South. But this has been rushed, and EW Rail have failed to consider its true impact.
The Parish Council set up a working party on April 1st 2021 to evaluate the proposal and its impact on the village.
The only other routes up for consultation go from a South Cambourne station and cut across the very bottom of Caldecote Parish.
The EW Rail consultation ends on 9th June, and we can comment either by completing a paper feedback form or online at https://communityhub.eastwestrail.co.uk/consultation-feedback
We encourage you to read fully the working party’s findings and EWR documents (see below) then complete the Consultation Feedback form, on the link above, before the 9th June.
