East West Rail is a scheme to re-establish a rail link between Cambridge and Oxford to improve rail services between East Anglia, Central and Southern England with enhanced connections to national mainline rail services. The proposed East West Rail route falls intro three distinct sections:

  • Western Section (Oxford to Bedford, Milton Keynes to Princes Risborough via Aylesbury)
  • Central Section (Bedford to Cambridge)
  • Eastern Section (Cambridge to Norwich and Ipswich)
Peter Austin will provide insights into how the project is establishing this new company and developing a different business model for building and operating a UK railway that will also integrate with established parts of the industry. Peter will also share their thinking and plans for the types of technology they will be using to establish a safe, reliable and customer focused railway.
