Rail Delivery Group response to Union Connectivity Review

In response to the government's publication of Sir Peter Hendy's Union Connectivity Review, Andy Bagnall, director general of the Rail Delivery Group, said:

“Improvements to cross-border rail services are a vote of confidence in the role train travel will play as a quick, easy and green way to get around the country.

“To maximise the benefits of the proposed improvements and get more people taking the train to travel across Britain, government should make long-distance rail fares simpler and limit the APD cut to routes where a journey cannot be made by train in less than five hours.”
