You may be aware of various proposals for future transport links in the Cambridge – Oxford corridor. We have been contacted by one campaigning group, CamBedRailRoad, whose proposals will include a rail route passing very close to our parish, somewhere between Dry Drayton and Madingley, with new rail stations at Northstowe and Cambourne. They are asking supporters to sign an online petition. You can see their proposals at: CamBed RailRoad – promoting the best route for the east west railway
