A series of recommendations designed to create a more reliable and resilient Midlands Motorway Hub area, with 10 recommendations for improvements.
This report was developed by Midlands Connect and Highways England to build on the momentum of the Midlands Connect Strategy published in March 2017. It sets out a strategy to harness the full economic potential that a reliable and resilient Midlands Motorway Hub can unlock for the UK economy.
The Midlands Motorway Hub spans key sections of the M42, M5 and M6 and lies at the heart of the regional and national Strategic Road Network (SRN).
A resilient and reliable Hub will support business to business interactions by reducing travel costs and lost time for delays and improving the productivity of our key sectors.
Delivering the recommendations in this report could support more than 50,000 new homes and up to 50,000 new jobs.
