"Almost £4 million of EU funding will be put towards upgrading the Ely North Junction.
The European Parliament agreed to invest £3.8 million in the major scheme today (Tuesday).
It comes just a week after the project, estimated to cost around £10 million, was identified as a priority in a major blueprint to transform the regions rail network.
The major document, called Once in a Generation - a Rail Prospectus for East Anglia, has been launched by MPs, business leaders and local authorities in a bid to make major improvements to the regions rail services - something which campaigners say will create thousands of jobs and unlock billions of pounds of investment
...It would also allow trains to run every half hour from Cambridge to Kings Lynn and Norwich, and it would relieve pressure on the regions congestion-blighted roads by enabling more freight to be taken by rail from Felixstowe to the Midlands."
