Railways: Swindon

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 10 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the timescale is for a decision to be taken on the re-doubling of the Swindon-Kemble line. (177629)

I understand Network Rail has consulted rail industry parties on possible changes to the Swindon to Kemble line. However, this is an operational matter for Network Rail, as the owner and operator of the national rail network. The hon. Member should contact Network Rail's Chief Executive at the following address for a response to his question.
