    Greater Anglia

    The Greater Anglia RUS, published by Network Rail in December 2007, shows how forecast growth in the region's population, employment and housing is expected to affect rail usage over the next 10 - 15 years and sets out the industry's preferred strategy to meet this demand.

    The Anglia region is of major importance to the UK economy. 120 million passengers each year use Liverpool Street Station making it Britain's busiest station - twice as busy as Heathrow airport. By 2021, the number of peak passenger journeys in the Greater Anglia region is projected to grow by an average of 19 percent, although this will rise to over 28 percent if additional capacity is provided.

    In addition to ongoing informal consultation with a wide group of stakeholders throughout the process, a formal consultation took place between April and July 2007. The resulting strategy includes longer trains and platforms, additional tracks, improved facilities at stations and improved freight capacity.
