How we’re improving the railway this August

This August, we’re working on some of Britain’s largest infrastructure projects.

We’re delivering the biggest programme of infrastructure projects in decades as part of the Railway Upgrade Plan.

There are many challenges facing the railway today. We have one of the most heavily congested railways in Europe, for example. Stations and platforms have to accommodate more passengers than they were ever designed for. Parts of the network have no room to run the extra trains that are needed to meet demand. The Railway Upgrade Plan is addressing these challenges.
