The Government support a progressive electrification of the rail network in England and Wales where this is affordable and generates value for money. Electrification should reduce the cost of running the railways, increase efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. We continue to work with Network Rail to look at the case for further electrification in the next rail control period starting in 2014.
