RMT responds to Public Accounts Committee report today on damning failures over rail infrastructure projects.

General Secretary Mick Cash said
“The lack of strategic planning on rail infrastructure projects identified in this report from the Public Accounts Committee comes as no surprise to RMT and is yet more damning evidence of the consequences of 20 years of fragmentation since our railways were broken apart and privatised.
“From rail infrastructure projects to other major investments , like fleet replacement, Britain has been left in the slow lane through years of inertia, incompetence and profiteering and as a result the travelling public are left paying the highest fares in Europe to travel on over-crowded and unreliable services.
“It is no wonder 70% of the British people now support the return of our railways to public ownership and RMT will continue to fight for that pragmatic alternative to the current chaos.”
