Jacobs develops Varsity options

Jacobs Engineering has been awarded a contract by Highways England to develop possible solutions for the Oxford to Cambridge Expressway project, focusing on development of the corridor between the M1 and M40 motorways.

The 150km expressway aims to improve connectivity across England’s central belt, helping to unlock strategic growth sites between the university cities of Oxford and Cambridge together with Milton Keynes’ businesses.

Over a two-year term, Jacobs and its supply chain partners will identify corridor and route options. The project scope also includes engineering assessment, stakeholder management and project management to progress the project through options development.

“This is undoubtedly a critical transport link in the national infrastructure to support the continued economic development of one of the most significant growth corridors in the UK,” said Jacobs Buildings & Infrastructure senior vice president Bob Duff. “Having worked closely with Highways England on the first section of the proposed expressway program, we look forward to integrating this experience with our proven transportation capabilities to deliver practical, strategic solutions.”
