EWR to gather en­vi­ron­ment data

- Business · Cambridge · Oxford · Oxford University

East West Rail­way Com­pany is car­ry­ing out en­vi­ron­men­tal sur­veys to gather data on plant and an­i­mal life, as well as en­vi­ron­men­tal and his­tor­i­cal fea­tures, on the pro­posed rail­way between Cam­bridge and Ox­ford. It has also pub­lished ini­tial base­line maps on its com­mu­nity hub.

Work will take place through­out 2021, with a con­sul­ta­tion planned early next year. The data from the sur­veys will in­form an En­vi­ron­men­tal Im­pact As­sess­ment which will be pub­lished when EWR sub­mits de­tailed plans - ex­pected to be in 2022.
