East Midlands Trains welcomed today’s announcement by the Department for Transport that the Midland Mainline electrification scheme is to be restarted.

Jake Kelly, Managing Director of East Midlands Trains said: “We welcome the news that the Midland Mainline electrification scheme is to be restarted and that work will now recommence.

“Over the next few years, around £13 million will be invested to improve services for our customers as part of our new franchise which will deliver better journeys, discounted fares, an improved compensation system, cleaner trains and stations and new technology. Today’s news about the electrification scheme will provide a further boost to this and will come as great news to our customers, communities and all the stakeholders who understand the importance of this major improvement scheme.

“There remains an urgent need for more capacity, new rolling stock and faster journey times on our network and these are big priorities for our customers and the communities we serve.

“We look forward to working with the Department for Transport and Network Rail to secure these important benefits for our customers.”
