Government's Autumn Statement recommits to East West Rail project

The Government’s commitment to EWR, confirmed by the Chancellor last week, reflects how important this project is for both economic growth and the quality of life in this area. That’s why 71 per cent of local residents support a new transport link between Oxford and Cambridge, and why local authorities and businesses have been so vocal in their backing for the project.

Following the Chancellor’s commitment, we are now able to move forward with our plans to deliver a faster, more sustainable and affordable way to travel that links people to their jobs, families and friends.

In the coming weeks and months, we will be reaching out locally to ensure that as the project progresses, we are working closely together to deliver a railway service that meets local needs and improves daily lives.”
