The transport ministers of Britain will accelerate the plans to reinstate a rail link between Oxford and Cambridge and lines which were axed in the 1960s. It could be reopened in a major boost for the railway network.
The British railway services lost under the Beeching and British Rail cuts of the 1960s and 1970s that could be restored to kick-start crucial housing developments or help create new economic opportunities.
The Transport Secretary Chris Grayling wants to recognize new transport projects that will unlock the economic growth and housing development across the country and ease crowded commuter routes.
The plans will be set out in the Government’s upcoming new rail strategy Connecting People.
The Government of Britain is setting up a company to drive forward progress on the East-West railway line to link Oxford to Cambridge to secure private sector investment and restore the route.
The line will help create the UK’s own centre for technology and science, and support the construction of thousands of new homes while boosting connections between East Anglia and central, southern and western England.
