Parish Council Agendas and Minutes

East West Rail Route 

The East West Rail line is a new rail route which will link Oxford to Cambridge and beyond.

East West Rail Ltd have been appointed by the Department of Transport to undertake the project. Last year they decided, after consultation, on the general route. This broad route corridor has been announced and survey work regarding the actual route alignments is underway. The Parish Council have been involved in an initial consultation with East West Rail Ltd and understand that there will be a further public consultation on the detailed route early in 2021

Cambridge Approaches is a separate group that has been formed to liaise with Parish Councils, individuals and communities to help ensure the best route is chosen for SW Cambs as a whole.

Cambridge Approaches have identified five possible routes. These have not been confirmed as possibilities by East West Rail Ltd. The possible routes identified by Cambridge Approaches are identified below.

Little Shelford Parish Council were asked by Cambridge Approaches for their comments on the five possible routes they had identified at that time. Following the Parish Council meeting on 21 September 2020 the following response was sent to Cambridge Approaches



Clearly only options 4 & 5 have a direct impact on the parish

Alternative Corridor 4

On the basis that the Kings Cross line would be dualled, a number of houses would have to be demolished at the level crossing on Hauxton Road.  Increased rail traffic, including the use of diesel trains would increase noise and pollution for homes on either side of the level crossing.

For these reasons Little Shelford Parish Council cannot support this alternative

Alternative Corridor 5

Little Shelford is a low-lying parish.  This route must cross the Cam and the road between Little Shelford and Whittlesford  as well as the M11, A10, 2 roads in Newton parish and the Kings Cross railway line.  It will necessarily be highly visible, dividing the parish in two.  There will have to be demolition of a number of houses and/or the loss of footpaths, an amenity in which the parish is poorly endowed.

For this reason Little Shelford Parish Council cannot support this alternative.

Other options

The parish council has no expertise that would allow it to make detailed comment on the other options, except to observe that Alternative Corridor 3 must incur significant costs to route around so close to the back of Haslingfield, through a cutting or tunnel.
