Rail Devo works

Despite Chris Grayling turning down TfL’s proposals to extend the benefits of the devolved London Overground network to more of the London and South East commuter network, the case for a rethink is compelling given the runaway success of London Overground. We will be continuing to work with TfL, our other members and with bodies elsewhere in Great Britain who have responsibilities for local rail services – or would like to. This includes a forthcoming ‘Rail Devo Works’ publication which will set out in detail just how devolution has led to better services for passengers where it has been applied in Tyne and Wear, Merseyside, London and Scotland.
