Oxford - MK - Cambridge expressway, what are your thoughts?
This summer the Secretary of State for Transport will be deciding the preferred corridor for Oxford - MK - Cambridge expressway. This is an important phase in the project and I want to know your views.
The expressway is a big opportunity for the region to unlock economic growth and housing. Furthermore, it is expected to cut journey times from the M40 to the M1 by 20-40 minutes. However, we need to make sure we get it right.
I recently received a presentation from Highways England and I am planning to meet with them again before the summer. I am very keen to take your views and thoughts with me.
There are three corridor options. All of which will have an impact on Milton Keynes. You can see the images above. Please share any concerns you may have, or indeed, any ideas you may have on how best to utilise the opportunities it will bring us here in MK.
The choice of corridor is the first step in a long process. The route options, which will be the detailed plans about what existing roads will be used and what new roads need to be built, will be brought forward next autumn. Construction is due to start in 2025.
Have your say. Please fill out the comment box below.
