TfL and DfT partnership for a joined-up London rail network

A week after the publication of the Centre for London’s report Turning south London Orange: reforming rail to support growth, the secretary of State for Transport, Patrick McLoughlin, and the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, announced a new approach to the delivery of rail services in London and the south east.

In an announcement on 21 January 2016, the Department for Transport (DfT) and Transport for London (TfL) set out a commitment to improve capacity and service levels across the region’s rail network. Essentially, the DfT and TfL will work together to create a more joined-up London rail network with more frequent services and increased capacity.

The proposals are set out in a prospectus to accompany a consultation (open until 18 March 2016). Details are provided at: A new approach to rail passenger services in London and the south east.
