New role aims to help resolve the many issues residents are experiencing due to works for two major rail projects.

Buckinghamshire Council has appointed its first HS2/EWR Marshal, to help residents impacted by the High-Speed 2 and East West Rail project works taking place across the county.

As marshal, Mark Rann will be the council’s eyes and ears on the ground, addressing highways and planning issues caused by HS2 Ltd, the EWR Alliance and their appointed agents, contractors and subcontractors.

Cabinet member with responsibility for HS2 and EWR, Peter Martin, said: “We have identified the need to invest further into our handling of HS2/EWR activities for the benefit of our communities.
