The latest news from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority:
The Board of the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority today unanimously approved triggering the process through which eleven market towns can bid for millions of pounds to help them build the future they want.
A new station to reconnect Soham with the rail network will improve economic growth, jobs and investment in the area, and give Soham people freedom of travel from their doorstep for the first time since the old station was axed in 1965.
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.
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Mayor James Palmer said two public information events on plans to build a rail station in Soham was another significant step forward for the scheme.
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.
