Government must commit to delivering Williams Rail Review

16 July 2019

Responding to the comments made by Keith Williams on the progress of the Government’s Rail Review, Darren Shirley, Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport, said:

"The Williams Rail Review is edging toward some sensible reforms of ticketing, franchising and network planning. While we look forward to discussing the detail of these proposals, passengers and wider society urgently need a railway which delivers reliable, affordable and environmentally sound transport to communities across the country. The Government must commit to delivering on Williams' recommendations with a new Railways Act, regardless of who is Prime Minister or any other changes we see in the coming weeks."
