Paused Electrification Works Re-Start
Following a pause on the TransPennine and Midland Mainline Electrification Projects in June, to allow the government to undertake a review, it has now been announced the work is to resume immediately.
Network Rail and DfT can now work on a better plan to deliver the projects, focussing on delivering key passenger benefits whereas the previous programme would only have changed the power supply of the trains.
The TransPennine upgrade is expected to provide capacity for six fast or semi-fast trains per hour between Manchester, Leeds and York.
The Manchester to York section of the work is now planned to be completed by 2022 meaning the entire line from Liverpool to Manchester will be fully electrified.
