Welcoming the announcement of a £48 billion investment in the railways, which includes new trains and track, Darren Shirley, Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport, said:
"Putting passengers' needs at the heart of our railways is key to creating a network that benefits the whole country. Investment like this is much needed and should help attract new passengers as well as improving journeys for those already using our railways.
"Creating a greener, cleaner train fleet is paramount to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transport and helping us meet our climate change objectives, so this investment is crucial"
