Worcestershire transport links & digital connectivity

One county, multiple opportunities for businesses to thrive & connect

Worcestershire is recognised as being at the cutting edge of the latest digital connectivity developments. Significant strides are also being taken to continuously strengthen Worcestershire transport links.

Digital Connectivity

Productivity-boosting 5G services
In 2018 the county became one of the first Government-funded 5G testbeds in the UK. This means all Worcestershire-based businesses can use private and secure 5G technology, which is anticipated to boost productivity by 2%, to build, test and accelerate their products and services.
Superfast Broadband access
At the same time, Worcestershire has 97% access to superfast broadband across its premises. Meanwhile, funding programmes, such as DCMS Gigabit Vouchers and Superfast Worcestershire, are enabling the county to continuously strengthen and expand its digital connectivity footprint while maintaining its highly desirable rural appeal.

Physical Connectivity
Work on improving Worcestershire transport links is an ongoing priority, further reducing congestion and improving journey times and county-wide travel overall. The current network of road and rail links make the county easy to get to and commute within:
  • Worcestershire Parkway
    The first new train station in the county for 100 years, Worcestershire Parkway Rail Station opened in February 2020, providing a valuable connection and extension to the Great Western Railway line.
  • Kidderminster Rail Station
    This popular station connects the north of the county to the wider Midlands. Recent investment will enable the site to cater for more train-users over the next 20 years.
  • M5 motorway
    Connects Worcestershire to the south-west.
  • M42 motorway
    Links Worcestershire with Birmingham and Leicestershire and provides access to the NEC and Birmingham Airport.
  • M50 motorway
    Enables easy access to Wales and key Welsh markets, such as Cardiff.
