Nuneaton North Chord to facilitate intermodal growth

DB Schenker Rail UK welcomes  opening of the Nuneaton North Chord rail link by Simon Burns MP, Minister of State for Rail.

As a key part of the Government’s investment in the Strategic Rail Freight Network, the Nuneaton North Chord benefits rail services travelling from major ports in the South East, such as Felixstowe, to the West Coast Main Line. The one mile stretch of new railway both eases rail congestion at Nuneaton and provides capacity for the expansion of intermodal train services to support customers in, and the economies of, the West Midlands, North West of England and Scotland.

Alain Thauvette, Chief Executive of DB Schenker Rail UK, said: “The Nuneaton North Chord is an important strategic investment to support the UK economy as well as the rail freight industry. Intermodal traffic is the fastest growing rail freight sector and the opening of the Nuneaton North Chord will allow the rail freight industry to offer its customers the flexible and reliable services needed to facilitate continued growth.”
