Transport networks

Heathrow Airport for WebsiteWorcestershire is at the heart of the UK with excellent connections via road (M5, M42 and M50 motorways), rail (including, eventually, access to HS2) and air (particularly Birmingham International and good connections to Heathrow) – view map.

The county has benefited from recent infrastructure investment, for example ‘Pinch Point’ funding to alleviate congestion black spots including motorway interchanges.

In addition, plans are afoot to develop a ‘Managed Motorway’ system on the M5 between Junction 4A (M42 Bromsgrove) and J6 (Sixways).
