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.”

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
