Midlands Connect Technical Appendices

Midlands Connect has taken an 'evidenced' approach through a number of technical studies which, in parallel with those of Network Rail and Highway England, will focus on building the strongest economic case possible for strategic transport investment across the region.

From the initial tranche of our programme, technical work (summaries and 2-pagers) from each of the work packages can be viewed here.
