Our Great North Rail Project

Welcome to the first edition of a new regular update on Network Rail’s improvement work between Preston and Blackpool which forms part of our £1bn+ Great North Rail Project.

By 2022 the Great North Rail Project (GNRP), part of Britain’s Railway Upgrade Plan, will have delivered more than £1bn of improvements for customers across the north of England.

GNRP is a vast programme of improvements to transform train travel for customers in the North.

It will enable hundreds more trains to run each day: more trains with more seats, running more quickly and more reliably. Train customers are the immediate beneficiaries of improved transport links (or connectivity) between towns and cities in the North.

As new opportunities, including jobs, are created and businesses get access to a greater pool of talent, local communities and the wider regional economy will feel the knock-on benefits of GNRP. This will boost growth regionally and nationally.

This e-bulletin will provide you with all the latest project news, along with details of upcoming meetings and events.
