The latest news from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority:
Network Rail has announced it is launching a public consultation in early 2020 on proposals for a new railway station for Cambridge South.
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.
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.
