In Partnership for Britain’s Prosperity
In 2017, the rail industry launched ‘In Partnership for Britain’s Prosperity’ its long-term plan to change and improve. The plan was underpinned by four commitments to secure a stronger economy, better customer journeys, boost local communities and deliver more rewarding jobs on the railway.
While we continue to work hard to deliver big improvements today, we also recognise that the system is under strain, and last summer’s ambitious but ultimately disruptive timetable change is an example.
That’s why we want to go further, we submitted our proposals to the ongoing Williams review in early 2019, we are calling for bigger, once-in-a-generation change to unlock greater improvement for the future.
Securing almost £85bn of extra economic benefits across the country and enabling further investment
£50bn + more investment into the next decade
7,000 new carriages by 2021
6,400 extra services a week
Securing 100,000 job opportunities across the country by 2027
Investing £54m to enhance almost 180 stations from 2017-2019
Delivering on our commitments
Since 2017, we have been working together to deliver what we promised.
A strong railway links to a strong economy, which is why Britain cannot afford to go back to the days of rail deficits acting as a lag on public funds. That’s why “in partnership for Britain’s prosperity” includes our commitment to keep operations costs in the black in line with government expectations.
