You will be aware that a Red Extreme heat warning(External link) has been issued by the Met Office ahead of expected 40 degree temperatures on Monday & Tuesday this week in Cambridgeshire.
Given the potential risk the extreme heat poses to staff and guests, the EWR drop-in information event scheduled in Haslingfield for Tuesday 19th July will be postponed. They do not have a firm date yet and are talking to the venue and with their team. However, they are aiming for a date in the week of the 25th, with a current preference being Friday the 29th. I will keep you updated and circulate a confirmed date as soon as I have it.
Beth West – the East West Railway Company (EWR Co)’s new Chief Executive – invites people living and working in communities between Oxford and Cambridge to meet the team at a series of drop-in events.
The events, which will take place in June and July, will help residents understand how East West Rail (EWR) is progressing and provide opportunities to meet the EWR Co team face-to-face. The sessions are open to everyone, with events located in Bicester, Bletchley, Cambourne, Cambridge, Haslingfield, Hauxton, Lidlington, Oxford, and Woburn Sands.
Members from the EWR Co team will be on hand at the events to talk about any aspect of the project, illustrated with plans, maps and other information, as well as talking about likely next steps for the project.
The drop-in events are designed to provide you with a chance to meet and speak to members of the project team.
They’re still in the process of reviewing the feedback received during the second Non-Statutory Consultation and so do not have any new information to provide now, the want to listen to your views and will offer as much information as possible at this stage.

Cambridge Approaches are encouraging residents to take 10-15 minutes from their schedule to attend, ask questions etc.
Soon there will be a leaflet distributed to households with summary points to help people frame some key questions. Please contact @ and @ if you can help to distribute the leaflets in Comberton by door-drop.
EWR will be passing through much of South Cambs including Comberton so we’d like to make sure the leaflets can be circulated to give Comberton residents an opportunity to attend the engagement meeting.
