On 9 March, the Department announced that it would provide a £625,000 funding contribution to the England’s Economic Heartland Strategic Alliance (EEH). This will enable EEH to support the Government’s aspirations for the Cambridge to Milton Keynes to Oxford corridor. It will do this by providing a clear evidence base to support transport investment decisions in the region, and by helping to ensure that transport infrastructure improvements facilitate economic and housing growth.
