A £38 billion five-year Government plan with Network Rail to overhaul Britain's railways is being "reset" because it is "costing more and taking longer", Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin has told MPs.
He said that electrification work is being "paused" on the Midland mainline and on the Transpennine route between Leeds and Manchester.
Mr McLoughlin blamed Network Rail for the problems and told MPs none of the executive directors would get a bonus for the past year.
Network Rail chairman Richard Parry-Jones is to step down and will be replaced by London's Transport Commissioner Sir Peter Hendy, Mr McLoughlin said.
Important aspects of Network Rail's investment programme are costing more and taking longer. Electrification is difficult. The UK supply chain for the complex signalling works needs to be stronger, construction rates have been slow.
It has taken longer to obtain planning consents from some local authorities than expected.
But that is no excuse - all of these problems could and should have been foreseen by Network Rail. So I want to inform the House of the action I am taking to reset this programme and get it back on track.
