New hope in campaign to reopen Wisbech Rail
Hopes of reopening Wisbech Rail have been revived this week after an independent study concluded that the project would be financially viable.
There have been fears that the £200 million projected cost of the project would mean that Wisbech remained cut off from the rail network for the foreseeable future.
