Weʼre raising £5,000 to help spread the message for CBRR, a group incorporated to champion the optimal route for the Oxford-Cambridge Knowledge Arc transport link.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

Story

CamBedRailRoad (CBRR) is a community-based, voluntary Think Tank, led by two distinguished transport infrastructure Civil Engineers. Their road, rail and metro underground and overground experience includes projects in the UK and the Far East.

Your Donation: will help us with much needed funds for promotional activities, such as our website design, hosting and content; printing promotional materials; a PR campaign; creation of engineering drawings. We would also benefit from the help of planning and architectural consultants.

Our Mission: based on a holistic approach, is to design, develop and champion the optimal route for the Oxford to Cambridge Knowledge Arc multi-modal transport corridor's Missing Link, the Central Section from Bedford to Cambridge. We submit it for consideration by all the agencies concerned at this crucial planning stage; Government has recognised that the co-ordination recommended by National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) has simply not occured.

Current rail proposals do not serve and sustain the high density of new and existing settlements along the East West Expressway. The CBRR Proposal is the solution:

* It optimises travel between home and employment/leisure hubs

*It bundles road and rail in an intermodal corridor

*It integrates trains and people, from East and West, North and South, throughout the Central Section and beyond

*It meets the needs of train-deprived, existing and proposed commuter zones

*It preserves best countryside, prime agricultural land, landscape and rural recreation

Our motivation: has been to rectify the failure to date of the many independant Agencies, working to their respective briefs, to determine a co-ordinated, communal, best-fit transport plan for the Central Section, as recommended by NIC, that fulfils the declared responsibilities of the CPCA and meets the key priorities of 'England's Economic Heartland'.

      Great campaign - I've long thought that this is the best route between Bedford and Cambridge, serving the most people along the way.
