Where Will the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway Go?


Location: Where Will the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway Go?


JUNE 2018

The Oxford to Cambridge Expressway is a proposed dual carriageway set to run between Oxford and Cambridge via Milton Keynes. The objective is to allow for faster travel between these towns. The expressway has the potential to have a big impact on the ‘Golden Triangle’ of London, Oxford and Cambridge.

The completed expressway route would serve the growth of hundreds of local science and technology businesses, ranging from start-ups to global multinationals, as well as connect talent to surrounding areas. This has earned it the nickname of ‘the Brain-Belt’.

According to Lord Andrew Adonis, previous Chairman of the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC), “The arc spanning Cambridge, Milton Keynes and Oxford attracts the brightest and best from some of the most cutting-edge industries.”

The Department for Transport has agreed to take it forward as part of a £7billion infrastructure investment.

Direct transport between Oxford and Cambridge could cut commuter journey times by up to 40%, but there’s more to the expressway than a quicker commute.

According to the 2016 Oxford to Cambridge Expressway Strategic Study, the Corridor will see a 40% increase in travel demand by 2035.
