The Oxford-Cambridge Arc is already home to some of the most productive towns and cities in the country. The Government’s ambition is for further growth within the Arc that will help make it a world class economic hub. Delivering the right infrastructure is vital to support this.

In March 2020 the Oxford to Cambridge expressway project was paused while we undertake further work on other potential road projects that could support the Government’s ambition for the Oxford-Cambridge Arc, and benefit people who live and work there.

We look forward to working closely with our local partners to explore these issues and bring forward plans that make a real improvement in the area.
