Haverhill is expanding. Many houses are being built but is the infrastructure keeping pace?
Haverhill and most of West Suffolk look towards Cambridge for economic growth, leisure and shopping rather than Ipswich.
It is possible that a rail arc between Oxford and Cambridge will be built and it might even extend to Norwich.
But what of Haverhill? The road network is not fit for purpose and is jammed and polluting. Where is the mass transit system moving significant numbers of people between Haverhill and Cambridge? Should it be rail, tram or guided bus? Or is Haverhill to be ignored?
A lot of folk commute to Cambridge from Haverhill and more are likely to do so. Most take their cars although a few hardy souls cycle.
It is time for Haverhill to be heard.
