Last week the government announced Abellio Greater Anglia will hold the Eastern Rail Franchise. After a tough bidding process, Abellio Greater Anglia have promised to deliver £1.4 billion of investment over the next nine years. Abellio will deliver:
- More than 1,040 new state of the art carriages by 2020.
- 32,000 more seats by 2021 and free Wi-Fi for all passengers.
- A Commitment to Ipswich to London in 60 minutes.
These improvements will provide jobs, bring economic benefits and cut journey times for commuters.
