Sign the petition
The petition was created by CBRR (CamBedRailRoad) and is asking for a full and fair consultation of a northern approach.
‘We, the undersigned, request that the Department for Transport ensures that the proposal for a Northern route for the Central Section of the East West Rail, such as that proposed by CamBedRailRoad with widespread support amongst residents of South Cambridgeshire, is fairly evaluated at the same time and to the same degree as alternative routes proposed by East West Rail Company’
It has now surpassed 7550 signatures – Anyone over the age of 16 can sign irrespective of location, This is a nationally significant infrastructure project and as taxpayers we should be demanding value for money and the best route chosen for all communities affected – see our objectives page to understand more.
Join or start your own village/resident action group
If you’d like to get your village or even just your road involved in supporting our work, we have created a helpful campaign kit which includes leaflets, signs, print at home posters and information to update your village website or to go into your village magazine. With these tools you should be able to get your campaign up and running in no time and we are also available to help with any questions or queries.
Please get in touch if you need more support.
