Railway Upgrade Plan update 2017 – 2018: London North Eastern & East Midlands

London North Eastern and East Midlands

The London North Eastern and East Midlands route (LNE&EM) runs from the Scottish Borders to London St Pancras, connecting major towns and cities in the North, North East and East Midlands. Each day, we serve around 20 per cent of the UK’s travelling public, with hundreds of commuter and leisure services connecting major cities and conurbations, supporting regional economies up and down the country. Passenger numbers are growing rapidly across the route, and are expected to increase by 30 per cent at Leicester, Derby and Nottingham by 2023. 

Our route team are focused on helping the communities we serve, listening to what they want and delivering a safe and reliable railway that meets their needs. Working with our train and freight operating customers through alliances and partnerships, we will focus on their passengers – who care simply about value for money, getting on the train when they want to and getting off where and when they want to – as well as business customers who need to receive their goods on time.
