Britain Runs on Rail has been created by The Rail Delivery Group’s (RDG) to shine a spotlight on the crucial role the railway plays in British life, and to tell passengers about how rail companies are delivering a £50bn+ Railway Upgrade Plan to build a bigger and better railway.
It is the first time all train operators and Network Rail have come together to tell the railway’s story since the industry was restructured in the 1990s.
Paul Plummer, Chief Executive of the RDG, said:
“The railway is an ever more vital public service, making a crucial contribution to national life. Billions are being spent building the railway the country needs and that passengers want and we must explain where that money is going and why it’s needed."
“Our goal is to sustain support from the public and private sectors for continued funding of rail. There are many challenges and tough choices that government, the industry and the country face if we are going to deliver better services. Our campaign will help to encourage that debate.”
