Train operator Abellio has agreed to sell 40% of its Greater Anglia rail franchise to Japanese firm Mitsui. The line has been run by Greater Anglia since 2012 and the company renewed the franchise in August.
It says the deal will result in a £1.4bn investment over nine years, with new trains and average journey times reduced by 10%. The rail union RMT said Britain’s rail network was being sold off like it was a “dodgy car boot sale”.
I have attended many meeting over the last few years…There have been several/many promises made by what was called Abillio Anglia – None of which has come to anything yet!!!
Now that the mighty Mitshui have taken a good chunk will we now maybe see some investment coming to Whittlesey – I wonder.
