28 Oct Major investment in West Anglia rail needed
Major investment is needed in train services in the west of the county is the message from the West Anglia Taskforce, who have today launched a five point call to action to improve the West Anglia Main Line.
2) Improving service levels to other communities along the route to support growth.
3) A new timetable by 2020 to take advantage of new, faster and longer trains.
4) Four-tracking the railway in the mid-2020s and mitigation works for level crossing closures as a precursor to Crossrail 2 opening in 2033.
5) Progressing Crossrail 2 ahead of submitting a Hybrid Bill by 2019.
