A blueprint for desperately-needed improvements to the railways in Norfolk was unveiled today, calling for crucial track upgrades, faster trains, new stations and more frequent services.

MPs, councillors and businesses have drawn up the Norfolk Rail Prospectus to make the case to the government and the rail industry that Norfolk has been stuck in the sidings for too long.

They hope the document, which they insist is not a wish list but has genuinely achievable goals, can be used to put pressure on Network Rail and the companies which will be bidding to take on the franchises for the Greater Anglia and East Midlands two years from now.

The draft prospectus was unveiled at a meeting today.

  • Lets hope the costs of these improvements are fully undertaken by the people who actually use the trains .... save the taxpayers subsidies for better cycle paths in Norwich instead.
