Mayor confirms Cambridgeshire Metro plans will not be affected by East-West Rail
Mayor of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, James Palmer has today confirmed that plans for a Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro will not be affected by the government announcement that the preferred route for East-West rail is to be Bedford, St Neots and Cambourne.
Mayor James Palmer said:
“To be clear, this will not affect our plans for delivery on the Cambridge Autonomous Metro, and we remain committed to bringing the CAM to Cambourne and on into the centre of St Neots. The CAM will deliver a world-class mass transit system that will complement the new rail link, serving the smaller communities that the heavy rail line will pass without stopping.
