Consultation in early 2021 - East West Rail Route

We’re planning a non-statutory public consultation in early 2021 to hear your views on proposals for the alignment of the new section of East West railway route that would run from Bedford to Cambridge. The consultation will also cover a number of other improvements to the line from Oxford to Bedford which we have developed in response to earlier consultation with our stakeholders and communities.

This is the second time we will have consulted on proposals for works from Bedford to Cambridge. In 2019, more than 7000 people responded to a non-statutory public consultation on five potential route options for the new East West railway line. Since then, we have selected a preferred route and have progressed our designs, carefully considering all of the feedback shared with us. See more about the preferred route option here.
