Truss welcomes £1.4 billion boost to rail

South West Norfolk MP Elizabeth Truss has welcomed today's announcement from the Department for Transport of £1.4 billion boost to rail travel in East Anglia.


Elizabeth said 'This significant investment will see more carriages and free wifi on routes to Cambridge via Thetford as well as increased cross country services which is good news for South West Norfolk residents and is something I have long been calling for. I have also been pressing for improved services, longer trains on the Fenline and will maintain the pressure to ensure the Ely North junction upgrade progresses as quickly as possible.  Today's announcement demonstrates the significant commitment to improving East Anglia's rail infrastructure which is great news for Norfolk and is a fantastic boost to the local economy.'
