Rail is an ever more vital public service, enabling jobs, housing and economic growth. But there’s a capacity crunch affecting the railway, with passengers having doubled in 20 years and the number of trains increasing too. That’s why Britain Runs on Rail is working with ourselves and other rail companies to deliver billions of pounds of improvements and reverse decades of under-investment.
A £50bn plus Railway Upgrade Plan will help ease the congestion on Britain’s railway, breaking bottlenecks and harnessing digital technology to run the extra trains passengers want and the country needs. Find out more about the Railway Upgrade Plan here .
