Railway Upgrade Plan

Our multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan represents the biggest investment programme in the railways since Victorian times.

Better, more frequent, and faster journeys for passengers across Britain are now a reality, as the benefits of projects carried out since 2014 right up to the present have come to fruition.

Millions of passenger journeys have already been transformed, and the improvements and expansions delivered will now play a huge part in enabling Britain’s recovery from the coronavirus crisis.

We’re still working on and improving the railway every day – here’s some more information about what we’re doing right now.
