Cambridgeshire County Council’s Head of Strategic Planning has recommended that Network Rail’s planning application, to develop the former marshalling yard in Whitemoor, be granted. Peter Heubeck, Network Rail Project Director said: “I was delighted to hear today’s news that Network Rail’s development proposal has received this recommendation.  We already have the backing of March Town Council and Fenland District Council and this is yet another positive step forward. I am confident that we will bring employment, financial growth, and of course the railway back to March.”             The planning application and the proposed conditions will be discussed at 7pm on Monday 13 October 2003 by Cambridgeshire County Council’s Development Control Committee at Neale Wade Community College, March.

About Network Rail

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
