Bedford iLab Side View

 

Bedford sits in the middle of the Oxford to Cambridge Arc which with London delineates The Golden Triangle.

This is where world-class innovation and entrepreneurial activity draws inspiration from a proliferation of universities, colleges and research institutes.

The National Infrastructure Commission published a report into the Cambridge – Bedford – Milton Keynes – Oxford corridor which identified key projects to support including East West Rail and Continuous Road Expressway, enabling Bedford to realise its growth potential with the opportunity to unlock significant sites for residential and business development.

The key transport infrastructure will enable Bedford at the corridors centre of a vision as the UK's Silicon Valley to benefit from high-value business and academia clusters while offering cost-effective residential and commercial comparable prices with shorter, uncongested connectivity.


Bedford is perfectly placed to play a major role in this innovation hothouse with the world renowned Cranfield University and a host of other academic institutions and corporate R&D centres.

 

"Invest in Bedford, the first point of call for retail, industrial, office and land property options. The perfect setting for access to M1, A1 and London just 40 minutes away."
