Chamber comment on Abellio winning East Midlands Railway franchise

Commenting on Abellio being announced this morning as the new franchisee for the East Midlands Railway, Chris Hobson, Director of Policy at award-winning East Midlands Chamber, said: “The East Midlands Railway network is vitally important for business, providing essential connections beyond London and Sheffield and also across the country beyond Lincoln and Stoke.

 

“The new franchise includes exciting plans to improve passenger comfort, seat numbers, free wifi, more car and cycle parking and new trains, including trialling hydrogen-powered stock. We will continue, however, to press the Department for Transport for full electrification of the Midland Main Line so that we can enjoy lighter, cleaner, greener trains and closer integration with HS2 along the route.

 

“We look forward to working with the new franchisee to build on the positive work that’s been done in the region in recent times and deliver a service fit for business growth over the next decade.”
