Corridors and Hubs

The map shows key corridors and hubs within the LEP area which play a critical role in driving our economy and need to be fully exploited.

M42 Corridor runs through Birmingham, Solihull, Bromsgrove and Tamworth.
Many major economic assets are located along or close to the motorway:
Birmingham Airport; the NEC; Land Rover Plant; Birmingham Business Park;
Blythe Valley Business Park, Solihull Town Centre; Bromsgrove Technology
Park as well as Hams Hall and Birch Coppice

A38 Central Technology Belt runs south from the proposed Regional
Investment Site in East Aston through a number of key knowledge and
technology assets in the centre and south of Birmingham, including the
University of Birmingham, through to north Worcestershire.

E3I Belt a 20-40 km area straddling southern Staffordshire and north
Worcestershire featuring ‘economic’, ‘entrepreneurial’, ‘environmental’ and
‘innovation’ factors which create the conditions for business growth and
potential for sustainable, knowledge-based economic growth.

M5 Corridor runs through north Worcestershire connecting the M42 and
linking the area with the Black Country, the rest of Worcestershire and the
South West beyond.

M6 Toll running from Cannock to the south of Lichfield and west of
Tamworth, to Birmingham International.

A5 Corridor attracts investment and provides access to supply chains, such
as the stretch of the A38 route between Fradley (Lichfield) and Burton upon
Trent.
