Consultation launched for 'On Track - the 20 year interim report' by Peninsula Rail Task Force

21st September 2015

Categories: Latest News

The Peninsula Rail Task Force campaign is calling on the Prime Minister to sign a 3-Point Plan for a great South West Peninsula railway and commit the Government to big, decisive investments that will deliver:

  • A resilient and reliable railway, protecting the coastal mainline, building additional inland route West of Exeter, installing a long-term solution for Bridgwater and introducing increased capacity on the Exeter to Waterloo line.
  • Faster journey times and better connectivity through upgrading signalling, improving line speeds, introducing more modern diesel trains, running more trains to London from Exeter and a clear timetabled plan to extend electrification through the Peninsula.
  • Sufficient capacity and quality, providing sufficient trains for local and national services; introducing more trains on overcrowded routes and cascading Thames Valley’s existing rolling stock to the South West.

Consultation launched

A consultation has been launched for the Task Force's interim report on the South West rail network. The report sets out the vision for the peninsula, along with next steps. 

You can find the report and consultation on the Peninsula Rail Task Force website. Responses are welcomed by 25th September.
