Investment in rail: Oxera quantifies the economic benefits

Oxera found that Britain's railways provide £31 billion a year of benefits to the economy through freight and passenger services, reduced congestion on roads and wider economic impacts. The government's announcement means companies will continue to benefit from the increased output, reduced costs and better links between companies and their employees that rail provides.
