Earlier this year the East West Railway Company appointed a new CEO.

Ahead of a Local Representatives meeting scheduled for 27th July 2022, CPRE Bedfordshire has written an open letter to Beth West setting out our concerns about the project.

The full CPRE response to the 2021 EWR route alignment consultation – prepared by CPRE Bedfordshire and CPRE Cambridgeshire & Peterborough on behalf of CPRE nationally can be downloaded via this link.

We recognise that there is a great deal of uncertainty about the future of East West Rail circulating in the media at the moment and would like to reassure readers that we will continue to keep them informed on key developments and our work on this issue.

Update: In September 2022 we wrote a similar letter to the new Secretary of State for Transport, Anne-Marie Trevelyan.
