Yesterday the Government announced a £9.4 bn investment in rail, and a further £200 m for the development of the Strategic Rail Freight Network. The major upgrade of freight lines will include upgrading major container routes from the deep sea ports.

Rail freight should also benefit from the development of an Electric Spine corridor  of electrification, from Southampton to Birmingham, East Midlands and South Yorkshire.This should offer prospects for electrically hauled freight in the medium term.
