Great British Railways: What does it mean for infrastructure investment?

Transport secretary Grant Shapps has said that the formation of Great British Railways is aimed at “growing the network, not shrinking it.”

Under the new organisation, Network Rail, along with functions from the Rail Delivery Group and Department for Transport will be absorbed as the government delivers what has been described as “the biggest change to railways in 25 years” and aims to lay out a 30 year strategy for the sector.

GBR is expected to deliver £1.5bn in savings a year after five years as a result of “increased purchasing power and economies of scale, and make it easier and cheaper to plan maintenance, renewals and upgrades”.
