The future is rail, not road. That is the key message of the Rail Britannia Campaign. When it comes to the movement of goods into and within the UK, the message of the video is clear - rail rules over road. Putting increased rail infrastructure utilisation and development for freight at the top of the government’s agenda is a must with this summer’s most heated call for strategic national rail improvements within the UK.
This video features Britain’s leading transport commentator, Christian Wolmar, interviewing Martyn Pellew, Group Development Director for PD Ports. The two men discuss the development of northern England through UK port and rail infrastructure Pellew focuses on the need to upgrade the UK’s rail infrastructure, especially along the strategically placed East Coast Mainline.
