The Thames Hub is a bold new approach to future infrastructure development in Britain. It brings together rail, freight logistics, aviation, energy and its transmission, flood protection and regional development. It is unique for its scale and strategic cross-sector thinking. Recognising the synergies between these different strands, it reaps the benefits of their integration. It is an opportunity to reassert Britain’s role as an international gateway for people, freight and communications.
The Thames Hub will help to balance the economy across the UK. It will create a coherent high-speed rail network that opens up a direct route from the North and the Midlands to Europe, avoiding London congestion; and it will put in place the transport connections Britain needs in order to maximise its trade links with the rest of the world.
