We're calling on the Government to electrify more rail lines to tackle climate change and air pollution.
Reopening a disused rail line can transform an area, but it happens all too rarely.
We're calling for a national programme of rail reopenings. We've identified 33 top-priority lines that would put 500,000 people in reach of the railways.
The railways have the potential to deliver huge economic, social and environmental benefits to communities and the country as a whole, but our research shows this isn't being realised.
If the Rail Review doesn't address this, the Government risks squandering the chance to create a better railway.
Transport is the UK's largest emitter of greenhouse gases. But change is possible if we act together.
