MPs and business leaders are calling on the Government to press ahead with a £35 million upgrade to the Ely North Junction.

It's claimed the improvements to the rail route would attract more firms to the area and would also enable faster rail journeys to London.

The group laid out the plea in an open letter to the Transport Minister Patrick McLoughlin.

"This is a vital investment which represents superb value for money, and given that the business case for it has already been fully established, it needs to be given the green light now."

– Henry Bellingham MP
