Midlands Connect has unveiled an ambitious plan to move ahead with seven rail projects in the region, which are designed to be co-ordinated with HS2. Midlands Connect said Midlands Engine Rail would boost capacity and allow another 736 passenger trains to run every day. The planners have identified 60 places which stand to benefit, between Leicester in the south east of the region and Crewe in the north west. As a start, Boris Johnson is being urged to provide £45.5 million to fund the first stage over the next three years.
