Travelling by rail, and moving goods by rail, is a really important part of tackling the climate crisis. Rail is cleaner, greener and safer.

Our campaign covers the whole of Britain, and includes:

  • A full rolling programme of electrification
  • The full completion of HS2 to Scotland
  • Improved accessibility and step-free access
  • Encouraging more freight onto rail
  • Northern Powerhouse Rail
  • A proper solution to the congestion in and around Manchester
  • A long-term funding settlement for Transport for London
  • Investment and growth for rail in Scotland

... along with many other issues.
