Chamber response to Government's announcement on East Coast Mainline


Marianne O Sullivan, Chamber policy adviser said: "Today's announcement on plans for digital signalling on the East Coast Mainline (ECML) are welcome and will help to boost frequency.

However, it is still imperative that the bottlenecks in Northern sections of the ECML are addressed to create a reliable service across the whole network and to benefit the UK's economy. We will continue to push for the investment needed to create an East Coast rail service which has the right capacity and capabilities for our businesses.”
