Peterborough - a connected city

Connectivity

Our connectivity shapes our success. We’re well served by rail and road links, less than an hour from London by train and have quick connections to Eurostar rail services, Felixstowe port, and Stansted and Luton airports.

Our businesses can move from city centre to motorway in 10 minutes and from some of our newer business and distribution parks in less than five minutes – making it a highly efficient base for companies relying on road access.

Our train station recently received a £43m upgrade to deliver more reliable services and greater capacity. It connects us directly with London, Leeds, Newcastle, Cambridge, Leicester, Birmingham and Edinburgh. A new Thameslink connection due in 2018 will link Peterborough directly to Thameslink services for direct access to Gatwick and Luton airports and St Pancras international rail station.

Employees can travel from one side of Peterborough to the other in just 15 minutes on our parkway system, making us one of the best cities for commuting. For cyclists, we have the popular– Green Wheel network – 45km of dedicated cycling routes in and around the city.

Our city-wide Peterborough CORE is a pure fibre gigabit speed internet network helping businesses communicate up to 100 times faster than traditional business connections. The ability to access VoIP telephony, HD video conferencing, remote data storage and cloud computing means our businesses can enjoy the best technology available anywhere in the world and improve their own connectivity and competitiveness. A report has been released recently detailing the benefits of this connectivity for businesses.

Companies need reliable channels to access markets; we’re continually reviewing and investing in infrastructure to ensure our industries are the best connected in the country.
