Village noticeboard:

East West Rail Route meetings

"The Cambridge Approaches working group published a map of alternative route alignments in EWR's option E search area. These have been presented to about twelve local parish councils (Toft, Comberton, Barton, The Eversdens, Harlton, Haslingfield, Harston, Hauxton, Little Shelford, South Trumpington, Great Shelford) and some district and county councillors. The presentation and discussion has been at an on-going series of meetings, with the aim to reach some consensus about their relative merits and for subsequent presentation to other stakeholders including East West Rail. Note these are not the EWR route alignments, we expect those to appear in January 2021. The group would like to present these routes to interested members of the public and, given the Covid-19 situation, the best way is via webinar. As with the parish councils, the routes will be presented by David Revell of Cambridge Approaches who is a civil engineer with extensive experience with railways and a resident of the area. The schedule of these webinars is as follows: They expect the webinars to last about an hour and there will be opportunities to ask questions. Please click on the links above to register for the webinar date that you would like to attend (the content will be the same in each webinar)."
