East West Rail Consortium


The Consortium was formed in 1995 with the objective of promoting and securing a strategic railway connecting East Anglia with Central, Southern and Western England, including a spur to Aylesbury.  This includes an Eastern Section working to improve the railway connections between Ipswich to Cambridge and Norwich to Cambridge.


The Consortium brings together local authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs), Network Rail and the Department for Transport in a collaborative partnership.
