The East West Rail scheme will re-establish a rail link between Cambridge and Oxford to improve connections between East Anglia and central, southern and western England.
The project is split into three sections:
The western section of the project is being delivered in phases; with phase 1 – connecting Oxford to Bicester Village – completed in 2016.
is being delivered by the East West Rail Alliance – formed in 2015 and comprising Atkins SNC Lavalin, Laing O’Rourke, Network Rail and VolkerRail.
The East West Rail Alliance project Charter is at the core of everything we do. More than a simple list of our values and behaviours, our Charter is formally written into our Pure Alliance Agreement contract, and helps to shape a highly collaborative and innovative culture.
