Great Barford Parish Council

In February and March, East West Railway Company will be running a series of community events in venues across the area between Bedford and Cambridge.


In January, the Preferred Route Option for the section of East West Rail between Bedford and Cambridge was announced by the Secretary of State for Transport, the Rt. Hon. Grant Shapps MP. It would link existing stations in Bedford and Cambridge with communities in Cambourne and the area north of Sandy, south of St. Neots.

Everyone living and working in the area, or with an interest in the railway is invited to join the East West Railway Company team at any of the events they will be holding in February and March this year. You will be able to find out more, talk about the next steps for the railway, share your views, and meet experts from across the East West Railway Company.

Beginning next week, the events are being held over six weeks in fourteen locations across the area, at varying times of day and days of the week.
