Media links

The Media have been quick to recognise how important this subject is and how limited public knowledge of it is. They see the opportunity and responsibility to spread the word and there is currently and ongoing a  high level of media interest in the CBRR campaign. We were gratified by the words of an MP we met for the first time recently, who said “CBRR are clearly an impressive, well-informed group who 'must' be taken seriously.”

“Our area is driving the UK economy. The scale of development that brings means we must get the infrastructure right and for the sake of our residents and future generations it must be sustainable. Putting both road and rail along the A428 corridor where so much growth is planned delivers sustainable infrastructure with a minimum of planning blight. It is the obvious solution.”
