The Ely to Peterborough line has been designated a Community Rail Service.
The Hereward Community Rail Partnership (CRP) will look to support improvements on the 29-mile line, which serves Whittlesea, March and Manea. Abellio Greater Anglia, CrossCountry and East Midlands Trains provide train services, while the route is also used extensively by freight.
The CRP comprises local organisations, train operators, councils, rail users and other interest groups. It will have a direct input into attempts to secure better services and station facilities.
The CRP’s Chairman is Councillor Simon King.
