ICE response to Oxford - Cambridge 'growth corridor'

ICE has responded to the National Infrastructure Commission's call for evidence on the Cambridge – Milton Keynes – Oxford ‘growth corridor

The Oxford – Milton Keynes – Cambridge 'growth corridor' forms a recognisable economic area incorporating world leading research centres, technology firms and universities.

However, in the context of planning around transport and wider infrastructure networks our response highlights the need for greater recognition of the wider economic area of activity within which the corridor is located.

We suggest that the geography covered by England's Economic Heartland (EEH) partnership provides a more strategic basis for linking infrastructure services, recognising the need to improve transport links between the corridor and neighbouring areas.
