Rail North - The Long Term Rail Strategy

The Northern and Transpennine rail services are scheduled to be refranchised with new contracts let in 2016. The Long term Rail Strategy will form a guiding vision for the specification and management of the franchises. The overall goal is for the railways in the North to be recognised as being a positive feature of living and working in the North, with a central role to play in supporting the growth and regeneration of the North‘s economy.

Liverpool Chamber will work with our members and other stakeholders to understand the impact the measures proposed in the strategy could have on businesses in the North West, paying particular attention to rolling stock and improved capacity.

This will enable us to represent the views of our members and help lobby the Government for much needed infrastructure improvements.

If you wish to provide the Chamber with your views please contact james.tune@liverpoolchamber.org.uk
