Western Gateway STB joins the East West Main Line Partnership

The Western Gateway STB has joined the East West Main Line Partnership, formerly known as the East-West-Rail Consortium. The STB recognises the strategic importance of rail links between Bristol and the South Coast to Oxford and from there on to Milton Keynes, Cambridge, Ipswich and Norwich.  Construction of the link between Oxford and Cambridge is well underway.  This is an excellent opportunity for the STB and East West Main Line Partnership to work together on developing proposals in the Western Gateway’s Rail Strategy for westward links from Oxford to Bristol, Swindon, Chippenham, Bath, Westbury, Salisbury and the South Coast.
