The East West Rail Consortium has responded to the East West Railway Company’s non-statutory consultation entitled ‘Making Meaningful Connections.
We welcome the Government’s continued commitment to restore the rail link between Oxford and Cambridge. Delivering and realising the full potential of East West Rail is the key transformational project for the region and beyond. The project will provide residents and businesses with genuinely new travel choices and opportunities, not just along the immediate corridor but as part of the wider transport system across the region.
Our response is focused on the strategic issues in relation to the proposals published by the East West Railway Company. Where our individual partners of the East West Rail Consortium wish to comment on detailed aspects of the proposals these have been made separately by them.
