CBRR Presentation Campaign
A key focus for CBRR is to inform residents across the County of the impending decisions about routes for the Expressway and the East West Railway from Bedford to Cambridge. We have done this by a continuing series of Presentations. The first were pre-view presentations to Parish Chairmen and SCDC Councillors. These have been followed by a series of continuing presentations to individual Parishes and groups of neighbouring parishes. Here is our Schedule and a map showing which Parishes have booked us. All remaining Parishes are warmly encouraged to book a presentation by emailing us at info@cambedailroad.org

“... East West Rail and the Expressway are well and truly on Government’s “to-do” list. At every opportunity I get, I reinforce the National Infrastructure Commission’s recommendation that their corridors must be aligned so that they serve both existing and emerging communities.”
