Responding to the Written Ministerial Statement on the Great Western Electrification Programme, Paul Plummer, Chief Executive of the Rail Delivery Group, representing train operators and Network Rail, said:

“Everyone who uses the railway will benefit hugely from the step-change in new trains on the Great Western Main Line from next year, part of the wider Railway Upgrade Plan of over £50bn. Across Britain, over 5,500 new carriages will be introduced between now and 2021 in deals worth at least £11.6bn – the largest sustained investment in new trains for over 50 years.”

“While some parts of the Great Western Electrification Programme have been deferred to a later date, rail companies continue to work hard to deliver the high-performing railway that Britain deserves as decades of under-investment are reversed.”
