The electrification of the Midland Mainline has been resumed!
Please reconsider the decision to 'pause' the electrification of the Midland Mainline and resume this project as soon as possible.
Why is this important?
The Supreme Court recently ruled that the Government must take more action to reduce air pollution. At the moment, diesel trains pass through already polluted cities, causing more illness and premature deaths. Diesel trains also have a bigger carbon footprint than electric trains. The towns and cities along the route will not be able to meet air quality and carbon emissions targets until the Midland Mainline is electrified.
