The specialists behind price comparison site Train Tickets UK have assessed the likely effects of the government’s plans to invest £9billion into the nation’s rail service.

With further increases expected in the next couple of years, the team at Train Tickets UK have offered their guidance

Hailed as the biggest boost to our rail network since the Victorian era, the government has released plans to invest a significant amount of money into the rail industry in a bid to boost the economy by creating more jobs as well as helping to reduce the North-South divide. Some of the new schemes in place are said to include upgrades that will allow for significantly larger capacities around cities, faster journeys and an “electric spine” running from Yorkshire and the West Midlands to the South coast.

The team at Train Tickets UK specialise in providing their users with access to the most affordable train tickets across the country through their comparison site and greeted the news with interest, in particular with regards to how the country’s networks can be improved. One member of the team shares their thoughts on the matter.

“Here at Train Tickets UK, we are particularly interested in how the upgrades will mean greater capacity around major cities, making rail more convenient accessible and comfortable to travel by.”

However, there has already been a level of controversy over the decision with some suggesting that with soaring rail fare, increasing numbers of people won’t be able to enjoy these changes. With further increases expected in the next couple of years, the team at Train Tickets UK have offered their guidance:

“The initial figure of £9billion can seem somewhat misleading , with much of this being spent on new schemes that won’t be in place until 2014. Some have also expressed their concerns over not being able to experience the improvements due to a lack of affordability, but here at Train Tickets UK we specialise in helping our customers save as much money as possible. Comparing the market, avoiding peak times and booking early can all significantly reduce travel costs.”

Train Tickets UK is one of the UK’s leading comparison sites, founded with a view to helping customers source the most affordable travel deals. Providing customers with rail arrangements across the UK, the team strive to make sure their site offers users all relevant information regarding routes, times and operators.
