Back to Latest stories

We were pleased to see that EWR appeared on the list of projects Government is keen to accelerate.

At EWR we believe that local people living and working in the communities in and around Oxford, Milton Keynes, Bedford and Cambridge, deserve reliable, sustainable and affordable public transport that links them to their jobs, families and friends.

The EWR team is passionate about making life better for the communities we serve by connecting people to the things that really matter.

EWR will offer cleaner, faster travel between home and work and opportunities for days out, reducing journey times, traffic congestion and pollution. We are delighted at the prospect of delivering the benefits of this fantastic new line for hundreds of thousands of people.
