Proposals for the new Oxford to Cambridge Expressway have recently been announced by the Government
Announcing the scheme, the Government said, “This expressway will enhance both transport connectivity and growth across the region for the benefit of the UK as a whole….
“…Building the new link close to the east/west rail link will also offer more options for the commercial development of up to 1 million new homes, in line with proposals by the National Infrastructure Commission, and encourage more people to travel by train rather than by cars.”
The plan is for 300.000 of these new homes to be in Oxfordshire.
A full public consultation will be held next year, in which residents and businesses in and around the corridor will have their say on more detailed designs for the route.
