This document outlines the government’s strategic vision for the railways and explains what we are doing to make it a reality.

It explains our plans to:

  • bring the organisations that run the track and the trains closer together to deliver better services for passengers
  • invest in upgrades to the network to deliver faster journey times, more capacity, and support economic growth
  • improve the customer experience, including provision for smart ticketing
