Phil Verster, Network Rail's Route Managing Director for London North Eastern, the route which connects the capital with the Calendar region, says the plans for improvements to the network will make connections between northern cities faster and more efficient.
Key items in the plan include the new Rail Operating Centre in York which is already being built which will allow us to consolidate our signalling and improve efficiency. The Northern Hub development and electrification will deliver more frequent, faster, greener connections between our northern cities.
