CHUMMS - A14 CORRIDOR STUDY
Rail from St.Ives to Huntingdon is being investigated by multi-modal consultants
It had been feared that the CHUMMS consultants were only investigating reopening the Cambridge to
St. Ives line as a branch to St.Ives only and not to join up with the ECML at Huntingdon.
Following the Railfuture public meeting in Cambridge, some members e-mailed GO-East to
suggest including Huntingdon link in the multi-modal study. The reply from GO-East is that the full
link will be included as part of the study.

Peter Lawrence, Railfuture East Anglia branch chairman, was seen on Malaysian television recently.

1999) when Peter was interviewed by Robert Hall on the train from Sheringham to Norwich.
