East West Railway Company has made its first major strategic award appointing an Arup-led consortium to support early works, so the project can continue its rapid progress once a decision is made on the preferred route for the Bedford to Cambridge section later this year. This section was recently designated a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project by the UK Government which means that following comprehensive consultation, EWR Co will be able to apply for a Development Consent Order to authorise the project. Once the preferred route has been selected, Arup will be supporting EWR Co with a range of work including critical route alignment design and assessment, public consultation work and factual studies to inform strategic decision making.

EWR Co was set up by the Department for Transport to pioneer a new business model that combines delivery of both rail infrastructure and passenger services for a new direct rail connection between Oxford and Cambridge. It has a remit unique in the industry to promote innovation and challenge industry norms.
