Leicester to Birmingham Line
Leicester to Birmingham Line
The Birmingham to Peterborough Line is a cross-country railway line, linking Birmingham to Peterborough, via Nuneaton and Leicester.
Since the Beeching Axe railway closures in the 1960s, it is the only direct railway link between the West Midlands and the East of England. The line is important for cross-country passenger services, East of Peterborough, the route gives access from the Midlands to various locations in the east of England, such as Ely, Cambridge and Stansted Airport via the West Anglia lines. It is also strategically important for freight, as it allows container trains from the Port of Felixstowe to travel to the Midlands and beyond.
