TSSA today expressed sadness at the death of the former Transport Secretary, Chancellor of the Exchequer and long-time Labour party front-bencher Alistair Darling.

Whilst Transport Secretary Alistair Darling oversaw the creation of Network Rail, the public body which replaced Railtrack after it collapsed, and gave support to the Crossrail scheme, now the Elizabeth line.

TSSA General Secretary, Maryam Eslamdoust, said, “Alistair’s death is sad and unexpected. His contributions to public life, and especially to the railways, will be long remembered.

“Our thoughts are with his wife, his children and his family today.”
