The Association of Train Operating Companies today welcomed the government's £29bn investment package for rail, saying it will provide the platform for the rail industry to deliver.

ATOC Director General, George Muir, said: "The plan is well put together. It is good news for passengers. We will want to study the details, but the Railway Modernisation Fund should unlock a very large public/private investment programme - which is needed to deliver 50 per cent passenger growth.

"It will allow us to remove bottlenecks in London, Manchester and Birmingham and help us run longer, more comfortable trains for commuters. It will also support high speed, high volume inter-city journeys, which are forecast to grow by 80 per cent."
