The East Coast Upgrade
Major improvements

The East Coast Main Line connects London, Cambridgeshire, the North of England and Scotland.

Our programme of engineering works will improve the reliability and punctuality of passenger journeys, ensure we have the capacity to transport more passengers in the future and upgrade the power supply to enable faster, quieter and more environmentally friendly electric trains to run.
