The Anonymous Widower

The Future Of East West Rail

There is an article with this title in Rail Technology Magazine.

This is the opening paragraph.

Shortly before the end of last year, transport secretary Chris Grayling announced unprecedented proposals to create a new and independent East West Rail operation tasked with designing, managing and running services between Oxford and Cambridge.

After the opening of the first section of the route, from Oxford to Bicester and on to Marylebone, which I wrote about in Oxford To Marylebone Opens For Business, things seem to be moving on.

  • The Government has announced that the East West Rail Link could be privately financed, built and run.
  • This article in Rail Magazine, which is entitled Verster to leave ScotRail for East West Rail, states that Phil Verster from ScotRail will head up the East West Rail Project.

Let’s hope it all means full steam ahead.
