Cancellation of electrification is the real cause of the rail mess

by Steve Beasant on 4 June, 2018

Commenting on the hold-ups affecting Northern and Govia Thameslink Railway Former Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Tim Farron said:

“The decision to cancel and postpone electrification projects has caused this mess.

“The new timetable is a red herring, the major responsibility lies with the DFT who have gone back on their promises to electrify lines in the north.

“This has caused chaos as the operators have had to cope with out of date diesel trains when they’d assumed they’d be running new electric trains.”
