Midland Mainline Electrification

150930 – Patrick McLoughlin – Dear Colleague MPs – Midlands Mainline

The chair of Network Rail, Sir Peter Hendy, announced that work to electrify the line between Derby and Sheffield will be complete by 2023.

This will mean faster, greener and more reliable train journeys, with increased capacity.

The plans to electrify the Midland Mainline had originally been put on hold but will now resume.
