Development of projects that deliver journey time improvements in the southwest peninsula are included in Network Rail’s recently published Strategic Business Plan for Control Period 6 (2019-2024).

Network Rail will also explore other opportunities for further improvements with their customers and the Peninsula Rail Task Force.
