Chris Grayling to unveil plans for new fully privatised railway line
Track and trains on Oxford-Cambridge route to be run by one firm, in first fully integrated operation since 1990s privatisation
The government is to unveil plans for a fully privatised railway line, with track and trains operated by the same company.
A new route linking Oxford and Cambridge will not be developed by Network Rail, the owner of Britain’s rail infrastructure. Instead, a new entity will be responsible for track and infrastructure, as well as operating train services, under proposals drawn up by the transport secretary, Chris Grayling.
