The East Coast Upgrade

We’re upgrading the East Coast Main Line to allow more trains to run and deliver quicker journeys across the route.

The East Coast Main Line (ECML) is a key rail route, carrying over 20 million passengers a year, which connects London with west and east Yorkshire, the north east of England and Scotland.
