Travel to work patterns in the Corridor – December 2014

The London Stansted Cambridge Corridor is one of the most exciting and dynamic opportunities in the UK.

The London Stansted to Cambridge Corridor covers the area from the Royal Docks Enterprise Zone, Tech City, Kings Cross, and the Olympic Park, up through the Lee Valley and M11/A10 and West Anglia Rail corridors, to Harlow and Stansted, and through to Cambridge and Peterborough.

A jobs and growth agenda for the corridor

The consortium has set out its early thinking on a jobs and growth agenda for the corridor.  The LSCC Growth Agenda report looks at the key features of the corridor, as well as the objectives for the consortium.

Great connections

With an extensive rail and tube network it has excellent links into the heart of the London and northward to Cambridge.  St Pancras and Stratford International Stations provide high speed rail links to destinations in mainland Europe, with plans to expand services to Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Frankfurt. The arrival of Crossrail in 2019 will bring even greater rail connectivity to the corridor, including a direct link to Heathrow Airport – 35 minutes from Liverpool Street.

The M11 / M25, plus A10 and North Circular means the area is a major hub for logistics and distribution, with excellent road links to the UK’s ports and the north.

Stansted Airport

Stansted, the UK’s third busiest airport, provides international connections to over 100 destinations.  The new owner has ambitious plans to double its capacity, adding a range of new, long haul destinations.
