Rail industry welcomes reopening of TfL projects
The Railway Industry Association (RIA) supports Transport for London’s announcement that it is reopening rail projects in the capital.
Darren Caplan, Chief Executive of the Railway Industry Association, said: “It is very positive news that Transport for London have begun a phased approach to restarting projects, including the Bank Station Capacity Upgrade and the Northern Line Extension. Work like this should go ahead, where it can be completed safely, in accordance with Public Health England guidance and social distancing measures, and RIA supplier members will play an essential role in delivering these schemes.
“As these projects restart, RIA and its members call on TfL to work even more closely with rail businesses – throughout the country – who are working on London rail projects, so we can work even more collaboratively together to deliver effectively for customers – both passengers and freight – on the capital’s and surrounding network.”
