New Oxford Cambridge Expressway Proposed – Oxford Prospect

A study worth £512,000 will explore options into the potential for creating a dedicated road link between Oxford, Milton Keynes and Cambridge.This new route could help relieve pressure on London’s congested orbital motorway the M25. Though, it will be interesting to see what such a road would have on the business case for rebuilding and opening the East West rail link that follows the same route and serves the same destinations. Highways England has appointed WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff, Halcrow and Steer Davies Gleave as a joint venture to lead the study. The study will consider options for improving connectivity between the towns and cities along from Oxford to Cambridge. It will also extend to the A34 as far as the M4. In particular, it will look at making use of existing roads where possible and considering the case for filling the missing links.
