The Result of the GCP Foxton Level Crossing Bypass and Travel Hub Consultation was presented to the GCP executive Board on 20th March.
The Board followed the recommendation and as such the GCP will not be pursuing the Bypass element of the scheme, but instead will progress to the next stage of the project in relation to the Park and Rail Rural Travel Hub.
The next stage for the project is to move to a public consultation on this element of the scheme which is proposed to take place at the end of the Summer (September). The project team will be preparing materials and evidence to present during the consultation and will publicise the consultation in the same way as previous GCP consultations.

The discussion of Foxton starts at about 1 hr 9 mins, and goes on for about 10 minutes.
There will be a public meeting for Cambridge Branch RUGs (Royston, Letchworth, Ashwell, Baldock and Meldreth, Shepreth and Foxton) with Govia Thameslink and Oliver Heald on 8th Feb at the Spirella Ballroom in Letchworth. Doors will open at 7pm with a view to starting promptly at 7.30pm. It would be great to have some support there for the Meldreth, Shepreth and Foxton User Group. Note that issues relating to our stations will be discussed, including restoration of semi-fast services and improving access at Meldreth.
The announcement about the proposed routes for the Bedford to Cambridge part of the East West Rail Link has been made and the public consultation is open now and closes on March 11th 2019.
Five options have now been published on the exact line of the Bedford-Cambridge segment of the East West Rail project.
