Rail Delivery Group comment on the Integrated Rail Plan
Earlier today, the Department for Transport published the Integrated Rail Plan for the North and Midlands.
Andy Bagnall, Director General of the Rail Delivery Group, representing independent train operators, said:
“Rail has a vital role to play in driving the new economy and the fair, clean recovery the country wants to see. While millions of people will benefit from this major investment in boosting connectivity between major cities in the North of England and the Midlands, leaving out key pieces of the jigsaw will inevitably hold back the ability for the railways to power the levelling up agenda and the drive to net zero.”
