Railway Industry Association

Darren Caplan, Chief Executive of the Railway Industry Association, said: “The Levelling Up White Paper published today is welcome, and it is particularly positive to see transport connectivity and rail services recognised within it.

“We know that rail is a vital catalyst for economic growth, generating £2.50 from every £1 of spend, and investment in our railway touches all corners of the country, supporting cities, towns and communities across the UK. We urge the Government to continue investing in rail as passenger numbers return post-Coronavirus and to support the decarbonisation, digitalisation and expansion of the railway network, ultimately ensuring the rail industry is best able to support economic growth, investment and jobs for the future.”
