Jacobs awarded Highways England's Oxford to Cambridge expressway project
Jacobs Engineering has been awarded a contract by Highways England to develop possible solutions for the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway project, focusing on development of the corridor between the M1 and M40 motorways. The expressway - approximately 93 miles - aims to improve connectivity across England's economic heartland. It will also help unlock strategic growth sites between the university cities of Oxford and Cambridge together with Milton Keynes' high-tech businesses and computer sciences. Over a two-year term, Jacobs and its supply chain partners will identify corridor and route options. The project scope also includes engineering assessment, stakeholder management and project management to progress the project through options development.
