New summer rail timetable

View original

The Rail Delivery Group has confirmed the summer 2019 timetable change which will come into effect on 19 May. It was announced that over 1,000 extra services added per week and overall, an additional 6,400 expected to be added between 2017 and 2020. The Rail Delivery Group said that they had “learned the lessons from last year’s disruptive summer timetable change” and that “services are only being introduced where there is high confidence that the necessary infrastructure, staffing plans and new trains will be ready.” Commenting on the announcement, Chief Executive of the Rail Delivery Group, Paul Plummer said “the scale of our ambition to improve means that this is a significant challenge and while there may be some teething problems, train operators and Network Rail have worked together to carefully assess where new services can be introduced without impacting reliability.”

At the LEP Network, we know the huge value of giving LEPs a forum to share best practice and engage with other stakeholders, so we are delighted to be involved with a transport-specific project which supports spending decisions that make a genuine difference.
