Calls made for investment in the East Coast Mainline, which passes through Newark Northgate, after £60m a year economic benefits identified




Calls are being made for investment in the East Coast Mainline, which passes through Newark Northgate, after research identified more than £60m of economic benefits that could be made each year.

The East Coast Main Line is a key strategic rail route, stretching more than 500 miles, from Inverness and Aberdeen, through key stops at Edinburgh, Newcastle and York to London.

The Consortium of East Coast Mainline Authorities (ECMA) is calling on the UK and Scottish governments to invest in the East Coast Main Line, after research conducted on behalf of ECMA identified over £60m of economic benefits per year through punctuality and reliability improvements on the line.
