Investment in rail ‘will deliver new growth and productivity across the country’

Rail companies respond to Spring statement.

Commenting on the Spring statement, Paul Plummer, Chief Executive of the Rail Delivery Group, which brings together train operators, Network Rail and rail suppliers, to enable a better railway, said:

“The re-affirmed backing of the Cambridge, Milton Keynes and Oxford corridor is good news, as is government funding for local transport schemes. The railway is a unique asset for generating prosperity across Britain and investment will deliver new growth and productivity across the country. Working in partnership, we stand ready to play our part.”
