Rail Delivery Group welcomes the new legislation contained within the Queen's speech

Andy Bagnall, director general at the Rail Delivery Group which represents operators, comments on the new legislation to modernise rail in the Queen's Speech.

Andy Bagnall, director general at the Rail Delivery Group, said:

“This is an important milestone towards delivering a better railway for customers and the nation as a whole with Great British Railways having the potential to join up the railway.

“To make these reforms a success, this needs to be balanced with giving private operators the contractual freedom to focus relentlessly on customers, and boldly innovate to meet their needs.

“The private sector will continue to work with government and the Great British Railways Transition Team to ensure these reforms meet the ambition and potential of the Williams Shapps Plan for Rail.”
