Manish Gupta, Head of Infrastructure Corporate Finance at EY, comments:

“The £450m for digital signalling will transform how the railway operates and will enhance capacity across the UK network.

“Currently at peak times and in key bottlenecks, the network is full and unable to keep up with growing demand from passengers. Digitising the signalling system will allow more trains onto the track and also provide a platform for closer co-operation between Network Rail, train operators and rolling stock providers with passengers also benefiting from improvements in the quality of real time travel information.”
