Investment connecting the Midlands, and the wider UK, into the global economy
East Midlands Airport – the UK’s largest pure cargo airport – is close to the very centre of England and its proximity to the M1 provides easy road access to the whole of the UK. The addition of East Midlands Gateway Rail Freight Interchange and a partnership with Highways England and other highways authorities means there will also be £35m of road improvements associated with East Midlands Gateway, including better connections at Junction 24 and Junction 24A of the M1.
The East Midlands is located in the UK’s fast emerging major European gateway
The Midlands’ economy is worth £217.7bn and the Government is positioning the Midlands as a major UK and European gateway strategically unlocking the region’s potential which will support growth across every sector. The investment is clear to anyone who travels the M1 where Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire meet. This investment, the changes in European trade and the Government’s focus to grow international business in the region means your business is uniquely positioned in one of the most strategic locations in the UK for growth in international trade.
