I am delighted Soham Station has reopened. This project is a fantastic example of the quick delivery of public transport infrastructure that will benefit this local community. I believe it can act as a springboard for enhancing rail services in our area by helping us make the case for reinstating the loop near Newmarket which could provide a direct rail service between Ely, Soham, Newmarket and Cambridge. I have campaigned for this station since before I was elected and am delighted that it has now come to fruition.
I want to thank all those involved in delivering the project at pace, including the Combined Authority, Network Rail and J Murphy and Sons Ltd, as well as the former Mayor, James Palmer who played an integral role in driving this project forward.
