Ed Thomas, UK head of transport at KPMG, comments on Department for Transport’s announcement on digitalising UK rail. He said:
“It’s welcome news that momentum around the digital railway is building. The growth in passenger demand and freight traffic over the past 20 years has brought significant capacity and performance pressures and digital technology will undoubtedly be a key part of maintaining a resilient and reliable railway. Investing to make the network fit for the future will not only help the UK become a world leader in rail but will help boost our economy by making sure we get people and business moving up and down the country.”
