Outrage as government pull plug on three electrification projects?

29 March 2018

TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes said:? ?“Grayling has the audacity to claim that he wants to end diesel trains on our rail network whilst cancelling major electrification projects. His actions are as nonsensical as his Brexit claims. Once a fibber, always a fibber.?

?“The National Audit Office is dead right to expose that his decision to scrap electrification schemes was driven by penny pinching and not by what is best for passengers. Unfortunately, Grayling and his ilk know the price of everything and the value of nothing. ?

?“Our railways need greater investment to build the 21st Century services our passengers deserve. Sadly, Grayling and the Tories are incapable of delivering this. ?

?“Only Jeremy Corbyn's vision for a publicly owned, People's Railway, can make this a reality.”?
