Prospectus Makes Case for Direct East West Rail Services from Ipswich and Norwich to Oxford

A direct rail link between Ipswich, Norwich and Oxford would unlock £17.5bn for the East Anglian economy, according to a new report published by the East West Rail Consortium.

It says the link would boost economic output and create 120,000 jobs across East Anglia, connecting high value economies in key growth locations in Suffolk and Norfolk with those in places such as Cambridge, Milton Keynes, Aylesbury and Oxford.

The report’s publication comes during a pivotal year for East West Rail, which will provide a strategic link connecting the east of the country with central, southern and western England. A public inquiry is currently being held ahead of construction of the scheme’s ‘Western Section’, linking Bedford with Oxford and Milton Keynes to Aylesbury, while a consultation is underway on route options for the ‘Central Section’ between Cambridge and Bedford.
