About us

The Alliance has been formed by a group of organisations including Oxford Friends of the Earth who raised the money to get things going. Our current list of members (8th March 2019) is below.

A central reason for building the Expressway is to open up new land for housing along the route. Building homes for car-borne commuters in the countryside does nothing to meet Oxfordshire’s desperate need for low cost homes for local people.

The Alliance wants to see improved transport links through the rapid construction of the ‘East-West Rail’ Oxford – Cambridge rail link. This should be built before any road is considered.

The Alliance meets regularly and has an interim steering committee of five people. We welcome people who would like to get involved – email us at
