Anneliese met last week with representatives from East West Rail (EWR) to discuss the project.
Anneliese Dodds, MP for Oxford East, said:
“It was great to catch up with the East West Rail team and hear about progress on the project so far. East West Rail will make a big difference to Oxford people trying to get to Milton Keynes, Cambridge and adjoining areas, and should substitute the time so many people currently have to spend in queued-up traffic in the car, with a much more pleasant rail journey.
“I was pleased to hear that the team will continue to engage with local representatives and local people, and I look forward to working with them in future as the project develops.”
Jeremy Damrel, CS3 Programme Director, East West Railway Company:
“It was great to be in Oxford to share progress with Anneliese on the East West Rail project.
“There is a huge amount of work going on in the background to refine design proposals for the new rail link, and we’re continuing our programme of meetings with local representatives to keep the conversation going and to answer any questions constituents may have.
“Later in the year we’ll be presenting the next phase of our proposals for the railway, bringing communities in Oxford a step closer to new connectivity all the way to Cambridge.
“Thanks to Annelise and her team for taking the time to meet with us.”
