Details:

Find out how thirty Local Transport Authorities across the North of England have been working together under the banner of ‘Rail North’ (and in close partnership with the Department for Transport) to shape the future of train services that will help to deliver a growing regional economy.

With the new franchises, authorities across the North will have a much greater say in shaping our rail network and it’s a positive first step towards the full devolution of wider responsibilities for rail.

Rail North has produced a Long-Term Rail Strategy, which sets out how rail will support the growth of our economy over the next twenty years by improving connectivity for passengers and freight across the North of England.

Rail North are also working with industry partners to bring forward future electrification schemes and Transport for the North on the Northern Transport Strategy to ensure that the Northern Powerhouse becomes a reality.
