Yes. Passengers will see huge benefits from the vastly improved features of the new trains – a capacity increase of 20 per cent, walk-through carriages, air-conditioning, live network information and enhanced accessibility.

 

There are currently no plans to increase frequency on the routes out of Liverpool Street when the new trains are introduced next year.
