Development of projects that deliver journey time improvements in the southwest peninsula are included in Network Rail’s recently published Strategic Business Plan for Control Period 6 (2019-2024).

Network Rail will also explore other opportunities for further improvements with their customers and the Peninsula Rail Task Force.

The Government will however determine any new rail infrastructure enhancements proposed for CP6 using a new process, details of which are expected to be announced shortly.
