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 comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
