The Secretary of State for Transport, Chris Grayling MP has visited Milton Keynes to announce the creation of the East West Rail Company.
I am very pleased to hear the new company’s focus will be on accelerating delivery. This project, linking MK with Oxford and Cambridge, will create significant economic and social opportunities for the region. Milton Keynes will be the heart of the UK’s Silicon Valley.
