MPs say there is "far too much uncertainty" over costs and delivery dates for speeding up rail routes in our region.
Plans to electrify the Midland Mainline between Sheffield and Bedford were put back on the agenda earlier this Autumn after being paused in the Summer.

The government insists it is committed to seeing their rail improvement programme through.
