RIA welcomes railway electrification plan


The Railway Industry Association (RIA) today welcomed the plan to expand the electrified railway network announced by Network Rail.

“While the government approval in July for electrification of lines including London to Bristol and Cardiff was a major step forward, suppliers need some confidence in a continuing programme if they are to invest in the training and resources needed to deliver electrification most efficiently”, commented RIA Director General Jeremy Candfield.

“Our members have worked extensively with Network Rail to help develop the positive business case for electrification schemes that their study has confirmed”, he continued.
