Councillor Lewis Herbert, Chair - Greater Cambridge City Deal

“Cambridge peak-time congestion is so bad it needs sorting out now” said the Cambridge News headlines.  That was in 1970, and it’s been repeated many times since.  

The daily rush hour queues are now even longer and our communities cannot afford them to grow any more.  That is why the City Deal will propose a ‘Peak-Time Congestion Plan’ in a week’s time to cut that gridlock, and why we want to hear the views of residents, local workers and employers before making final decisions.

interview.jpgYesterday the people of Cambridge overwhelmingly voted to remain members of the European Union. I am so proud of our city. Thank you for everything you did to help the campaign. Of course, I am deeply saddened that the result in Cambridge was not replicated across the country.

I know across Cambridge many people are aghast at what has happened, as indeed are progressive people across the rest of the country and Europe.

Together we must seek to rebuild bridges.

Today I feel disappointed and know many are apprehensive. I don’t think this is the right direction for our country. The Conservatives are already making life harder for people through their ideological cuts and assault on our public services. Now, outside the EU, with an even more right wing prime minister, life will get tougher still.

Once again, thank you for your support, I am sorry it is not the result we wanted.

Following today's tragic news, Daniel Zeichner MP said: 

Today's devastating news is heartbreaking. Jo was a good colleague who was elected to Parliament at the same time as me. She was a graduate of the University of Cambridge so is well known to many people here.

Jo was just doing her job: standing up for the people and the community she represented.

It is too soon to answer the questions about how and why she died. On this terrible day our hearts go out to Jo's husband and two young children. Our thoughts are with them as we all struggle to take in this awful, incomprehensible news.
