Welcome to the community events home page

Here at East West Railway Company (EWR Co), listening to and understanding the views of people living and working in the communities East West Rail will serve is fundamental to the way this new rail connection will be designed, built and operated.


Events overview

Now that most Government restrictions have been lifted, we are gradually reintroducing face-to-face meetings and engagement. This page will contain details of upcoming planned events in the community.

Our engagement team will be adding dates and locations across the East West Rail route at which local residents, businesses and stakeholders are invited to meet and speak with members of the EWR Co team.

We’re still in the process of reviewing the feedback received during the second Non-Statutory Consultation and so do not have any new information to provide at the moment, but we still want to listen to your views and update local communities on anticipated next steps.

The safety of our communities, stakeholders and staff remains a priority and we will ensure all events and engagement activities are Covid safe – as a result you will find that all our face-to-face activity will have strict safety measures and appropriate arrangements in place.
