Network Rail is holding a consultation on the East West Rail section which will run between Bicester Village and Bedford.

East West Rail is a project to connect Oxford and Cambridge by rail, a ‘corridor’ running across the south of England opening up new routes for regional and cross-country travel.

This consultation on this section will run until the August 11, and includes a public exhibition at the Harpur Suite in Bedford on July 18, from 12-8pm. This will be a

great opportunity to speak directly to engineers, planners, environmental experts and property specialists involved in the scheme.

Bedford mayor Dave Hodgson said: ‘East West Rail is an exciting infrastructure project for the entire Region, and the Council is working hard to ensure that the Borough benefits as

much as possible. I know that many people will have questions about the scheme, so I would encourage you to attend this exhibition if you can.’
