Members of the public will be able to watch tonight’s East West Rail briefing via a live stream on the Council’s website.

The meeting will be a presentation of reports that Mayor Tom Wootton (Conservative) commissioned following East West Rail (EWR)’s route update announcement in May 2023.

Earlier this month, Mayor Wootton faced criticism for not including other councillors and the public in the process.

The briefing, which will be delivered to councillors and other stakeholders, will appear on Bedford Borough Council’s website here from 6.30pm – 8pm.
