Infrastructure & Connectivity

The South East Midlands occupies a strategic position between London, Birmingham, Oxford and Cambridge. The area has excellent North-South links and major rail routes including the Midland, West Coast and East Coast mainlines. We also benefit from international connectivity through London Luton aiport, rail links to Gatwick airport and St Pancras International rail services, and proximity to both London Heathrow and London Stansted airports.

Improving East-West transport links between Oxford and Cambridge across the South East Midlands – specifically the East-West Rail and the Oxford-Cambridge Expressway is described by the National Infrastructure Commission as “once-in-a-generation investments that will deliver national benefits. The Government has committed £137m to support development and delivery of these projects. We continue working to establish a sub-regional transport board to progress these major projects, as well as digital and mobile infrastructure.
