The Government is committed to the biggest investment in the railways since Victorian times - £38 billion between 2014 and 2019. This will benefit millions of passengers by providing more capacity and improving stations. The Government has a record of delivery on rail improvements, and this will continue in the future as it delivers Crossrail, and future projects such as HS2. The new strategic vision for rail will ensure the UK's rail network is fit for the future.
Jonathan Lord knows the difficulties faced by our rail commuters and has regular meetings and correspondence with the CEO of SWR and with Transport Ministers to share commuters' concerns and to try to secure appropriate action.
