This is an ongoing campaign, and supported by some of the industry’s household names.

In their ‘About Us’ page, they make this observation:

“We passionately believe that a rolling programme of electrification will radically improve the UK Railway. The UK has suffered from too many boom and bust infrastructure projects. A steady, planned, rolling programme will reduce costs, speed up journey times, create more seats on more reliable trains – and ultimately reduce ticket prices.”

It is time to drive this particular campaign forward, and the ‘stop-start’ approach that has dogged Britain’s rail network for decades needs to change.
