Digital Infrastructure Project

​In parallel with our work on physical infrastructure, a key aim of England's Economic Heartland is to improve the region's digital infrastructure.

To help us improve connectivity we will be working with Government and the private sector, to ensure we have a more holistic approach to the way we look at our digital infrastructure requirements.

We are working to secure funding to enable high capacity fibre/ 5G infrastructure to be installed throughout the length of East West Rail to that it benefits surroundings areas as well as passengers - and for this approach to be repeated for other schemes.
