Rail scheme ‘vital’ for Cambridge faces 10-year delay

View original

Josh Thomas has reported that a major rail project that is “vital” to Cambridge’s economy could be delayed for at least a decade, and cost £14 billion more than expected. The development of Crossrail 2 has been described as “vital” to the success of the Cambridge to London ‘innovation corridor’ and the future of Stansted Airport. Although Crossrail 2 would not change infrastructure in Cambridge itself, it would increase capacity on the lines between the city and London, meaning more people could travel, more quickly and more reliably, between the two cities.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
