The latest news from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority:
Mayor of Cambridgeshire & Peterborough James Palmer has said Government approval for a scheme to allow eight-car trains to operate on the frequently overcrowded route between King’s Lynn and Cambridge will be a welcome boost to rail users.
With proposals for Soham train station set to be presented to the public this month, a series of clear, budgeted next steps to bring the scheme to delivery have been laid out by the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority.
Mayor James Palmer met with Rail Minister Andrew Jones MP yesterday to urge support for a bid to allow eight-car trains on the line between Cambridge, Ely and King's Lynn to tackle overcrowding at peak times.
A cross-organisational bus reform group, involving the Peterborough City Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, and the Combined Authority will be formed as part of the Combined Authority Strategic Bus Review, it has been announced.
