CAST.IRON holds second Exhibition in St. Ives

Date Issued: 22 March 2004

On Monday 22nd March CAST.IRON's exhibition returns to St. Ives town centre.

The exhibition will be held at the Free Church in St. Ives and will be open from 10am until 3pm.

Charles Warner, CAST.IRON's Press Officer said, "This is the second time we have been to St. Ives this month. As the last exhibition on the 5th of March proved very popular." Charles Warner added, "I felt it would be good for us to return to the town, particularly in light of the news that St Ives Town Council have decided unanimously to object to the Guided Bus Transport and Works Application, at special meeting held last Wednesday."

CAST.IRON Staff will be on hand to give information about their plans to re open the Cambridge to St. Ives railway line and will also be offering advice to the public about how to object the County Councils Guided Bus proposals.


Cambridgeshire County Council's Guided Bus proposals are with the Government, which must decide whether to approve an application under the Transport and Works Act.

People have until April 2nd to comment on the plans, and a public inquiry into the scheme is expected in September.


CAST.IRON will restore regular timetabled rail services to the dormant Cambridge to St. Ives railway line creating Britain's first community commuter railway.
