This Easter we're significantly upgrading the route between London Euston and Glasgow Central stations
Building a better railway
In the last 20 years, the number of people travelling on the rail network has doubled. The rail network, our stations and our platforms now deal with more passengers than they were ever designed for.
Our investment plan is entering its final phases and better, more frequent and faster journeys for hundreds of thousands of people are now months away for some, as the benefits start to come to fruition.
We’ll transform millions of passenger journeys in the months ahead and through to 2021 as more and more new services come on-stream.
What's happening across Britain this Easter?
Much of our work will centre on improving reliability and reducing delays for passengers. It will include:
Significant work along the route from London Euston to Glasgow - the West Coast Main Line.
Improving the reliability of the line between London Fenchurch Street station and Barking by replacing two bridges and renewing the track.
Significant electrification work (including installing foundations, masts, overhead line equipment and fencing) between Cardiff Central station and Severn Tunnel junction.
Upgrading the overhead wiring system on the Southend Victoria branch line as part of a £46m investment.
