Cambridge MP calls for better connectivity now

At a launch of the latest report from the West Anglia taskforce  in Bishop's Stortford, Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner called  for the Government to accept the evidence and urgently stump up the cash for investment in the West Anglia Main Line.

 The West Anglia Taskforce recommendations call for a new station at Addenbrooke's and four-tracking the Liverpool Street rail line close to London in advance of Crossrail 2. With new airport capacity in the south east at least ten years away, the improvements will also allow unused capacity at Stansted to be used effectively.

Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner said:

“With the new rail franchise in place, it is now vital that the line is improved. Investing in the West Anglia Main Line will cut journey times for Cambridge commuters and help growth in the London-Stansted-Cambridge corridor.

“We need to get the right infrastructure in place to position Cambridge and the region as the place in the world to do business especially in the technology and bioscience sectors. We urgently need fast and reliable transport to connect people to places.

“The importance of excellent transport links cannot be overstated, particularly following the Brexit vote.”
