A REVIEW of the Oxford-Cambridge Expressway proposal will be a priority should the country elect a Conservative majority government, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has said.
He was speaking on a visit to Milton Keynes with local Parliamentary Conservative candidates Iain Stewart and Ben Everitt.
The Conservatives will look at alternative plans to the scheme. The party is already progressing East West Rail links in the Oxford-Milton Keynes-Cambridge arc and will examine ways to accelerate plans to reopen the former ‘Varsity’ line.
It has also pledged to invest in local roads, tackle congestion ‘pinch points’ and support cycling schemes.
