The Chisholm Trail

Chisholm Trail - inner sections

The ‘Chisholm Trail’ is our proposal for a premier route running north to south, following much of the railway line, which we would like to see built.

The Chisholm Trail is now one of the Greater Cambridge City Deal projects – see this page for more information.
