Infrastructure and Networks

Background Information

Railfuture's Infrastructure & Networks Group supports and promotes enhancements to the national rail network. These include new routes and stations (to serve more people), resolving bottlenecks (e.g. introducing flyovers to increase capacity and reduce delays), and faster routes (to become more competitive and encourage modal shift from the private car).
