The economic case for opening the Wisbech rail-link, included in today’s launch of the Wisbech 2020 Infrastructure for Growth lobby, highlights potential to open up the Cambridgeshire jobs market with better transport links.
The report to today’s launch at Wisbech Boathouse says cutting travelling time between Wisbech and Cambridge via March would help support business and employment in the town by increasing accessibility.
