Key projects

We’re making significant improvements to Britain’s rail network that will increase capacity, relieve congestion and provide better passenger facilities.

These major projects are being delivered as part of our comprehensive Railway Upgrade Plan and include national schemes of work that will allow longer, faster and more frequent trains to run, so that we can meet the increasing demand for rail services.
