Declaration of Opposition to the East West Rail Route Proposal

Request for Declaration Signatures –

Deadline 4th September 2023

We are a group of parish councils, councillors, environmental groups, campaign groups and residents of Bedfordshire, Huntingdonshire and Cambridgeshire.

We write this declaration in response to the East West Rail Bedford to Cambridge Route Update Announcement dated 26th May 2023.

If you are opposed to the East West Rail proposal, for any reason, then please sign and ask your parish council, councillors, environmental groups to join us in signing this declaration.

How to Sign the Declaration

Please confirm your signature by sending us an e-mail to: with your first name, last name and first part of your post code. Please identify any parish, town or ward for which you are an elected Cllr.

We will not be storing your e-mail address and will simply add your name to the list of signatories and then delete your e-mail.

The declaration will send the message to the Department for Transport and East West Rail to do better; to think again.

** The letter image above is labelled “draft” because it does not include the signatories. The word “draft” will be removed and the rest of the declaration will remain as is.
