Construction is starting on Phase One which will link London and Birmingham by 2026. Phase Two will run from the West Midlands to Manchester in the west and Leeds in the east completing the network by 2033.

Department for Transport

We work with our agencies and partners to support the transport network that helps the UK’s businesses and gets people and goods travelling around the country. We plan and invest in transport infrastructure to keep the UK on the move.

National Infrastructure Commission

The Commission is the body responsible for providing independent analysis and advice to the Government to ensure the UK meets its long-term infrastructure needs. Its role is to support sustainable economic growth across all regions of the UK, improve competitiveness, and improve quality of life. In doing so, it aims to be the UK’s most credible, forward-thinking and influential voice on infrastructure policy and strategy. It publishes a National Infrastructure Assessment once in every Parliament setting out its assessment of long-term infrastructure needs, with recommendations to the Government – the first of which was published in July 2018. The Commission also undertakes in-depth studies into the UK’s most pressing infrastructure challenges and monitors the Government’s progress in delivering infrastructure projects and programmes recommended by the Commission. More information about its work can be found on its website nic.org.uk or on Twitter @NatInfraCom

West Midlands Combined Authority

The West Midlands Combined Authority comprises 18 local authorities and four Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) working together to move powers from Whitehall to the West Midlands and its locally elected politicians, who know this region best.

Transport for West Midlands (TfWM)

Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) is responsible for providing strategic and operational transport advice to the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA).

Over £3.4bn is committed over the next 10 years to deliver a world-class integrated transport system which is clean, safe and affordable, one which meet the needs of a rapidly growing population and gives  everyone in the West Midlands access to the very best education, training and employment opportunities, no matter where they live in the region.

Together with our partners we are working towards building a healthier, happier, better connected and more prosperous West Midlands

Midlands Connect

Midlands Connect, in collaboration with central government, brings together local authorities and local enterprise partnerships from across the Midlands.

Together, the Midlands Connect Partnership and the Department for Transport have developed a transport strategy that identifies the major infrastructure projects needed to improve the connectivity of our region’s key locations so we can help drive economic growth and power the Midlands Engine.

Sir John Peace, chairman of Midlands Connect and Midlands Engine, said: “We sit at the heart of the UK’s transport network and therefore an investment in this region’s transport will have a remarkable benefit to the whole country and create a positive ripple effect to boost the development of industry, skills and infrastructure.

“This Strategy will help to secure the further infrastructure funding needed to lay the groundwork for improved connectivity across the Midlands, bringing the East and West closer together and opening the region’s businesses to the world.”
