What will pas­sen­gers make of it?

Rail (UK) - - Network News -

Pas­sen­gers and com­muters will judge the suc­cess of the RDG’s plan through in­creased ca­pac­ity, punc­tu­al­ity and value for money, says Trans­port Fo­cus Chief Ex­ec­u­tive An­thony Smith.

Speak­ing at the launch event on Oc­to­ber 20, he said that pas­sen­gers would need to see tan­gi­ble im­prove­ments to their jour­neys by rail, adding: “They don’t want to catch a vi­sion, they want to catch a train. Any pas­sen­ger will wel­come more pal­pa­ble ev­i­dence of op­er­a­tors work­ing more closely with Net­work Rail, as frag­men­ta­tion can be a prob­lem. They will wel­come in­vest­ment and judge it on lo­cal de­liv­ery. I think there will be some harsh crit­ics out there, and we will do our bit to mea­sure re­sponses through the Na­tional Rail Pas­sen­ger Sur­vey.”
