The latest news from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority:
The key next steps to dual the A10 between Ely and Cambridge will be presented to the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority Board next week.The Board will be recommended to carry out a Strategic Outline Business Case (SOBC) study for the dualling scheme.
Mayor James Palmer donned his hard hat and high-vis jacket on Friday (March 22) at the planned new Soham railway station site to see first-hand another step forward in its delivery.
A detailed report examining the feasibility of a metro system for Greater Cambridge and the wider region has found a 'compelling case' for the scheme.
Mayor James Palmer has said growing pressure on existing transport infrastructure around Cambridge Biomedical Campus (CBC) makes a clear and urgent case for a study exploring the feasibility of an earlier interim railway station at Cambridge South. The full station at Cambridge South, which will serve the CBC, is not expected to be built until around 2027, with the Combined Authority one of four funding bodies for the current phase of works led by Network Rail. The Combined Authority Board in March will be asked to decide whether to approve a study into the feasibility of an interim station delivered years ahead of the full station, including how much it would cost.
News that Highways England will begin work on its major A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet road dualling scheme in 2021 and not 2022 has been welcomed by Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough James Palmer.
