Electrification and other improvements: Transport Focus response to the Hendy review
25 November 2015
Today Network Rail published the report by Sir Peter Hendy into its planned improvement projects.
David Sidebottom, passenger director at the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:
“Passengers will be reassured that Sir Peter Hendy has found ways to continue with the investment in the much-welcomed and long-promised improvements. This follows years of above-inflation fare increases, increasingly crowded trains and disruptive engineering works.
“However there are delays to schemes and new plans to bring in revenue with the sale of station retail facilities. Passengers will want to see that these new plans are robust and can be now be delivered to help rebuild trust.”
