A14 Growth Corridor campaign group
Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, Suffolk County Council, Transport East and other partners are working together to promote investment the A14 Corridor to stimulate sustainable economic growth for the UK as well as Suffolk.
The aim is to bring much needed investment to improve the rail junction at Haughley so more freight from Felixstowe can go buy rail rather than road; roll out 5G, which can be a game changer for businesses; increase the number of EV charging points and improve existing A14 junctions like the Copdock junction and thus reduce congestion, accidents and carbon emissions.
The A14 Growth Corridor campaign group has been charged with providing the local business perspective in lobbying for investment by government in A14 Growth Corridor improvements. The group is made up of local businesses from a range of market sectors, plus Transport East, the regional transport body, and is a task & finish group of the Chamber’s long standing Transport & Infrastructure Group (TIG), chaired by Steve Britt of Anchor Storage.
