Reaction to September 2022 'Mini-Budget'

Cllr Steven Broadbent, Chair of the East West Main Line Partnership, said: “We welcome the inclusion of East West Rail on the list of major infrastructure projects which the government wants to prioritise and accelerate to realise economic growth. East West Rail will sustainably unlock job opportunities for residents, drive UK economic growth and innovation, and boost international competitiveness. As businesses in the region told us for our Building Better Connections report, published this week, its delivery – in full to Aylesbury, Bedford and Cambridge  – cannot come soon enough.”
