ITRC is using the infrastructure modelling capabilities developed in the MISTRAL programme to analyse scenarios and options for the Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford Corridor. This has begun with development of high resolution employment and population scenarios. A first round of analysis has developed projections of future needs for energy, transport, water and digital communications. ITRC is currently analysing options for sustainable infrastructure provision in more detail and connecting with the many stakeholders in local and central government. The aim is to deliver quantified results for these different future alternatives as well as insights on impacts on stakeholders.

We are planning an event in partnership with several stakeholders around November 2019. Please get in touch with Miriam Mendes for more information.

ITRC is a consortium of seven leading UK universities, investigating ways to improve the performance of infrastructure systems in the UK and around the world. Our research is helping businesses and policymakers to explore the risk of infrastructure failure and the long term benefits of investments and policies to improve infrastructure systems.
