The Mayor of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, James Palmer, has announced in his 100-day plan. He is committed to initiating feasibility studies on light rail and tunnelling for Cambridge and the surrounding region.
This development is very welcome, as Cambridge Connect has called for these feasibility studies since first publishing our proposals.

Update from District Councillor Ruth Betson who reported to residents via her Facebook page on 7th April 2018 after inviting James Palmer to visit Cambourne on Easter Saturday, “I am delighted that our Mayor, James Palmer, has committed to me that Cambourne will be in Phase 1 of the Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro (CAM).
This will provide us with the much needed fast and reliable transport to get us to employment areas such as the Science Park, Addenbrookes and central Cambridge, as well as to St Neots for commuting to London.
South Cambs is a key member of the Combined Authority, which has £600 million to improve transport links, as well as the Greater Cambridge Partnership, which has plans to improve access to Cambridge via rail, bus, cycle and foot paths.”
