CamBedRailRoad - proposal affecting our lovely rides

Hi all,

Don't think a lot of people are aware, but a decision will be made before the end of the year about the Oxford - Cambridge fast train link. The current proposals are cutting straight through Sandy, Guilden Morden, Bassingbourn.
This will be a fast rail link and there will not be any level crossings, which means that all country lanes will become dead-ends.

A proposal has been put forward to move the line further north, alongside the A428, which will also have the added benefit of linking up the newly proposed towns up there to Cambridge. It does make sense, as there will be many more commuters wanting that connection, than people travelling from Bedford to Cambridge.

Anyhow, to cut a long story short, if you want to continue enjoying cycling on countrylanes and want to protect our green space, could you please sign the petition, which is "To add the northern A428 proposal to be assessed and put forward during Public consultation"
