Richard Fuller MP now Formally Opposed to East West Rail

East West Rail has “hit the buffers” says Local MP

Bedford Independent 24/08/22

In an article for the Bedford Independent today, Richard Fuller MP for North East Bedfordshire, formally stated he is opposed to East West Rail.

“The business case was due to be presented at the start of June, but it’s been delayed again and again. I don’t think it stacks up,” he added.

“The consultation process changed the numbers halfway through and they didn’t tell anyone. What was seen as the most preferred route became the second least preferred route. I’m now formally opposed to East West Rail.”

BFARe has fought hard to show that Route E through and North of Bedford is the WRONG choice for Bedford residents. BFARe has campaigned to influence the Government, Bedford Borough Council and East West Rail to reconsider this environmentally destructive route and make a better choice for Bedford.
