What is the East West Corridor?


The East West Corridor is that part of Central England from Oxford to Cambridge encompassing the Silverstone cluster, Milton Keynes and Northampton which lies at the heart of the UK’s fast growing high-value knowledge-based businesses. It has been recognized that these areas already demonstrate higher than average growth year on year.

The corridor is the UK’s hothouse for world leading science, innovation and technology based industries. It contains world leaders in high-performance engineering, advanced manufacturing, motorsport, digital creative, life sciences. This growth has happened with limited encouragement, building on the world-leading Universities in its midst.

The area is already seen as an economic success, England’s Economic Heartland (EEH) identified 175,000 businesses employing over 1.64 million people adding over £92.5billion gross value to the national pot in its October 2016 report, but there is a real belief that the potential for economic growth is far higher. The corridor is now getting support. The National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) supports improved connectivity focusing on improving the rail and road links between Cambridge, Milton Keynes and Oxford and through EEH and SEMLEP initiatives, local government is committed to working together towards the collective goal.

To allow the corridor to be the best it can be certain key things have been identified: improved East-West connectivity: rail network and road network enhancements; housing developments to supply the workforce required to sustain the growth; and cooperation. It is a fantastic opportunity to shape the corridor for years to come with intelligent solutions to transport, housing, IT connectivity.
