Answered By:

I agree strongly that there is a need to improve London's mainline rail network. My draft 2050 Infrastructure Plan sets out the case for major investment in London's rail network to deliver a "second underground network" with higher frequencies and improved reliability. The plan also sets out the potential for more significant expansion of the light rail/rail network including an orbital rail network and major projects including Crossrail 2. I will continue to campaign actively for rail devolution in London.
