Almost £40bn investment for rail should help you get a seat on the train

Almost £40bn investment for rail should help you get a seat on the train :Nearly £40billion is to be ploughed into upgrading rail services, building tracks and improving stations.

A 20 per cent increase in the capacity of London’s commuter trains and up to 700 more journeys a day between major northern cities will be delivered by the Network Rail project.

Some 1,400km (850 miles) of track will be electrified, 500 level crossings will be bypassed and some closed-down stretches of line will reopen. A new route will connect Oxford and Milton Keynes.

‘Passenger numbers have grown far beyond even our own industry’s predictions,’ said Network Rail boss Mark Carnes. ‘So it’s vital that this investment over the next five years helps meet the continuing increase in demand.

‘It will help deliver more frequent, comfortable and reliable journeys and a safer, better-value railway for everyone.’

Rail watchdog Passenger Focus welcomed the £38billion investment, which comes after Network Rail revealed it is in for a £70million fine over delays caused by ageing infrastructure.

However, the plans are likely to mean more disruption for weekend travellers.
