value of output produced by businesses in the corridor
Midlands Connect is focusing on a long-term strategy for upgrading the route which will support sustainable growth all the way from Gloucestershire to Humberside.
Home to 5.5 million residents, the corridor is already a national and international economic driver that connects the East and West Midlands to the South West and the North. Investing in infrastructure improvements along this route will create a resilient alternative to the existing motorway network for businesses and freight traffic. The proportion of road-reliant manufacturing, logistics and distribution, food production, construction and agriculture businesses based close to the A46 is significantly higher than the national average.
