Improvements to the West Anglia Main Line have the potential to unlock substantial housing, jobs and business growth in the London-Stansted-Cambridge corridor. The West Anglia Taskforce was established by the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Mayor of London in February 2015 to examine this issue as part of their long term economic plan for London.
The Taskforce will build the case for upgraded rail infrastructure on the West Anglia Main Line to improve connections between London, Stansted and Cambridge, and unlock opportunities for economic growth along the whole route. It will report its initial findings to the Government in summer 2016.
