Delivering the plans
Electrifying key routes on the railway will mean faster, greener, quieter and more reliable journeys for thousands of passengers.
The Government is committed to investing in a programme of electrification that will help transform the railway and provide Britain with a sustainable world-class transport system.
Electrifying key railway routes will improve services for thousands of passengers and help support economic growth across many of our cities and towns. It will mean faster and quieter journeys with more seats on trains and improved reliability on some of the busiest routes.
We are working closely with the Department for Transport, train operating companies and other key stakeholders to deliver electrification in the North West and on the Great Western Main Line.
