'Devolve' decision making to locals to improve trains

More decision making powers should be given to local administrations if the "huge disparities" in the railway service are to end, a transport charity has said.

Campaign for Better Transport (CBT) chief executive Stephen Joseph believed local knowledge was the key to improving Britain's railways.

The research exposes the huge disparities in the quality of train services across the country.

Importantly, it suggests the answer is to give local administrations more control over their rail networks.

By devolving more decision making we can make full use of local knowledge and target investment where it will bring the biggest benefits.
