The latest news from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority:
I doubt I’m alone in suspecting that some people are deliberately trying to ‘misunderstand’ the careful balance of Covid-beating initiatives being put forward by the government and health chiefs - on the one hand, to jumpstart the economy and secure jobs, on the other, to protect life and suppress the spread of this dangerous virus.
One of the greatest conveniences of the modern world is public transport - and making it more available, more accessible, more reliable, more climate-friendly, more joined-up, and more affordable is high on my agenda as leader of the Combined Authority.
Mayor James Palmer tours Cambridge City and St Ives with Stagecoach to see extra steps in place to ensure safe bus travel
Being part of history while the ink’s still wet - or part of a future still unwritten?
After months being cooped up and locked down, it was wonderful to be walking through the fresh air of Cambridge market this week, meeting traders, city ambassadors, and shoppers face-to-face – well, space-to-space – to ask how they’re doing, what they want, and what we can all do to help them.
Mayor James Palmer has said findings which show the Greater Cambridge Partnership’s current Cambourne to Cambridge (C2C) busway scheme does not align with plans for the Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro (CAM) is more evidence of the need for a joined-up approach.
James Palmer, Mayor of Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, today welcomed the decision by Greater Cambridge Partnership to rethink their C2C - Cambourne to Cambridge - busway project and to work with the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority to build a route that will genuinely form the first part of the Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro.
